ICS AB has calibrated tensile testing equipment since the mid-eighties. Over time, the requirements have tightened and in the mid-nineties we decided to invest in an accreditation of our business. In April 1997 we were ready and approved by SWEDAC. We are listed as lab no. 1515 in Sweden's Measurement Place Calendar.
How is it done?
Our accreditation means that SWEDAC, Sweden's national authority for technical accreditation, has reviewed and approved our competence, among other things, against the requirements of ISO / IEC 17025. To help, SWEDAC has an expert independent technical assessor who reviews our methods and references. The accreditation is audited once a year by SWEDAC and / or technical assessors. Accreditation can be withdrawn if the requirements are not met or key people leave.
