Keysight Americas’ 19 service centers in the U.S., Brazil, Canada and Mexico have received accreditation for the 2017 version of ISO/IEC 17025 by the ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB), the largest multi-disciplinary accreditation body in North America.
ISO/IEC 17025 is the primary international standard for establishing laboratory competence and quality. The latest version of the standard to ensure calibration accuracy was published in 2017. ANAB assessors evaluate a laboratory ‘s ability to produce precise, accurate test and calibration data. As part of the accreditation ANAB assessment, the best accuracy (lowest measurement uncertainty) is established for each measurement parameter in a scope-of-accreditation. The scopes for all Keysight laboratories can viewed at: www.keysight.com/find/accreditation. The scopes for these 19 laboratories can also be viewed at the ANAB website: https://www.anab.org/ under Lab Related Accredited Organizations.
“Keysight metrologists and quality experts work with and inside standards committees to ensure we meet evolving calibration standards in our laboratories,” said Tom Ludden, general manager of Keysight’s Managed Services Division Americas. “Keysight strives to provide our customers with accredited calibration services so they can manufacture the highest quality electronic hardware.”
