Calibration Laboratory ISO/IEC 17025 Accreditation 31 October 2018 Dear Instron Customer: Instron® has a long history of providing high quality, technically competent calibrations, with some of our operations receiving accreditation more than 40 years ago. We are continually striving to expand and improve our services, but our number one priority is to ensure that you receive the highest quality calibration available in the materials testing industry. To ensure that we comply with the latest international standards as well as to serve our local markets, we strive to gain ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation for all of our calibration laboratories around the world. Our current accreditation status is described below. The Scope of Accreditation for each lab should be viewed to determine the details of the accredited calibrations. North America, Europe, and Asia Instron's Calibration laboratory is accredited to ISO/IEC 17025 for Force, Extension, Hardness and Temperature by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) under the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP), Laboratory Code 200301-0. NIST maintains an on-line register of certificates at: https://www-s.nist.gov/niws/index.cfm?event=directory.search#no-back The Calibration Laboratory (NVLAP Lab Code 200301-0) includes permanent facilities in Norwood, MA USA and High Wycombe, UK and all field calibrations, including multiple regions in North America, Europe, and Asia. Previously, Instron combined two separate NVLAP accreditations into one. Previously, our field and factory operations were covered by NVLAP lab codes of 200301-0 and 105023-0. All Instron calibration facilities are now covered under one certificate and designated as lab code 200301-0. Additionally, in November 2018 Instron’s accreditation in Europe was also moved into the NVLAP accreditation, allowing Instron to operate for the first time under one global accreditation body. If you have any further questions please contact the Manager of Calibration, James O’Donovan, at [email protected] or on + 1 781 575 5526. Brazil Field calibrations are available in Brazil for Force, Torque, Hardness, and Dimensional measurements. The field operations are accredited to ABNT NBR ISO/IEC 17025 by Cgcre/Inmetro (CAL # 197). Certificates can be found at: http://www.inmetro.gov.br/laboratorios/rbc. If you have any further questions about our operations in Brazil please contact our Brazilian Service Manager, Flávio H. D´Agostino, at Flavio_D'[email protected] or on +55 11 4689 5480. Sincerely, James O’Donovan Manager of Calibration Operations Instron
