Why ISO/IEC 17025?
1. Your company has purchased an XRF instrument or coating thickness gauge to verify the accuracy of your products or incoming materials.
2. You depend on this machine to control your process!
3. The annual calibration/certification of your equipment is equally important to maintaining your quality standards.
Why aren't you using a certified company?
ISO/IEC 17025-1999 is the current international standard of excellence in the field of instrument and standards calibration. UPA Tech accreditation to this standard means that UPA have successfully complied to the most stringent requirements placed on our industry. We pride ourselves in the fact we have accomplished this milestone and will continue to strive and remain at the forefront of our industry. We maintain strict, written procedures that detail the way in which we conduct ourselves in the field and in our own facility. All this is done to ensure the most accurate, dependable, and consistent service in our industry today.
This is accomplished through an independent accreditation body which reviews our records against the current ISO/IEC 17025-1999 standard to evaluate our compliance to that standard. The standard itself calls for periodic internal and independent audits to ensure compliance to the standard. All procedures must be written and reviewed with all applicable staff to ensure that any changes to our quality system have been communicated to all affected staff. This ensures the most recent procedures and processes are being employed in the service of our clients. Due to the extensive audit process, we are constantly checking our standards and procedures to ensure that quality work is produced each and every day of operation. In periodic external proficiency testing, UPA also ensure the quality and accuracy of the equipment that use in calibration and certification of client's work.
