EMI/EMC and Environmental (ESS) compliance and testing services provider Retlif Testing Laboratories informs it has finalized the accreditation process for its new dedicated Composites Testing Laboratory.
Located within the Composite Prototyping Center (CPC), in Plainview, N.Y., the new laboratory is now fully accredited to IS0-STD-17025, the international standard that represents the basis for accreditation from an accrediting body through formal recognition of demonstration of that competence. Administered by the Laboratory Accreditation Bureau (L-A-B), the accreditation enables a broader acceptance of test data generated, as the requirement for accreditation is requisite in industries where composites are widely used.
Leonard Poveromo, CPC Executive Director commented, “We are extremely pleased that Retlif is fully approved as the Composite Prototyping Center structural testing source for composites. This furthers our goals of helping organizations cross boundaries, expand manufacturing scope, and effectively compete in fast-expanding, dynamic markets. Retlif engineers and technicians will have full access to utilize all equipment within the center.”
Retlif President Walter Poggi stated, “This recognition complements Retlif’s existing accreditations which include over 500 international and domestic EMI/EMC and Environmental Simulation test methods.”
