ICS Laboratories is accredited by the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) to the ISO/IEC 17025 standard. ISO/IEC 17025 is a document that specifies internationally accepted requirements that a laboratory must meet to be deemed competent and for the results that it reports to be considered reliable. ICS has maintained accreditation to this strict standard for laboratory management and technical operation for more than 15 years. The accreditation process entails regular oversight by our accrediting body, including on-site audits of our testing facilities and test performance with year-round documentation submittal requirements.
What accreditation means to our clients is that they not only receive expert testing performed in optimal conditions on state-of-the-art equipment. It means that everything that goes into our testing of personal protective products is managed and checked according to a recognized international standard. Our staff’s training and qualifications, our equipment, our recordkeeping procedures and our own internal QA practices have been (and are continually) independently verified by a worldwide leader in vetting laboratory competence. ICS Laboratories meets the international requirements for laboratory competence so that we can consistently provide our clients with what they require: unquestionably valid, valuable and universally recognized test results.
