Why get accredited to ISO 17025?
Accreditation to ISO 17025 can have significant benefits for laboratories. Many companies want the assurance of NATA accreditation. They also use it as a marketing tool to facilitate trade. Your ISO 17025 accreditation is recognised internationally, enhancing your laboratory’s reputation, which frequently means an increase in business. NATA accreditation may also be a regulatory requirement for your laboratory (it is for many areas of testing). Another handy benefit of accreditation to ISO 17025 is that it automatically meets the requirements of ISO 9001. Whatever the reason for gaining accreditation, most laboratories derive great benefit from the independent peer review of technical competence that NATA accreditation provides.
