Advanced Test Equipment Rentals (ATEC), supplier of complete testing solutions for EMC applications in military/defense, telecommunication, commercial CE, aerospace and automotive markets, announced it has been awarded ISO/IEC 17025-2005 & ANSI/NCSL Z540-1-1994 accreditation for calibration by the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA). Accreditation to ISO/IEC 17025 is obtained through an assessment of a laboratory's compliance in carrying out specific tests and calibrations precisely to the scope of accreditation. ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation also demonstrates that ATEC has successfully completed the ISO evaluation process which includes recognition of technical competency.
"ISO 17025 provides the most highly recognized global standard for calibration and reflects our commitment to providing the highest quality test equipment to all of our customers," said George Bollendorf, marketing manager of ATEC. "EMC compliance test labs and OEM's that self-certify are required to use test equipment with the accredited 17025 calibration and we are excited to be the first and only test equipment rental company to have calibration of transient generators and other EMC equipment in our scope of accreditation."
