Accreditation

Exova – where quality is a given

At Exova, we aim to be the very best by following exacting quality standards that enable us to deliver accurate, reliable results to our customers.

Accreditation

We operate in accordance with applicable national and international standards. Where appropriate, our laboratories comply with ISO/IEC 17025, the international standard against which the competence of testing and calibration laboratories is assessed. In addition, we hold EN 45011 (ISO/IEC Guide 65) and ISO/IEC 17020 for the certification and inspection services we provide.

Our testing, calibration, certification and inspection services are accredited through the National Accreditation Bodies of the various countries in which we operate, including:

  • the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS);
  • the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA);
  • the Swedish Board for Accreditation and Conformity Assessment (SWEDAC); and
  • Standards Council of Canada (SCC)

These Bodies are signatories to bilateral and multilateral recognition agreements ensuring international acceptance of the results generated by our laboratories, important in today’s global marketplace.  

Our scopes of accreditation are available on the relevant Accreditation Body website or upon request.

Regulatory approval of our pharmaceutical laboratories is through the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Health Canada.

Regulatory approval of our Aerospace laboratories is through Nadcap who, in their own words, is the leading worldwide cooperative program of major companies designed to manage a cost-effective consensus approach to special processes and products and provide continual improvement within the aerospace industry.

Achieving and maintaining Nadcap approval in accordance with their very stringent requirements represents major on-going attainment and provides our customers with an assurance they can confidently depend. Exova holds Nadcap approval for metals and composite materials testing, NDT, chemical processing and aerospace quality systems.

We also have a range of customer approvals, including –
