ISO/IEC 17025 is an international benchmark for certifying the competence of the testing and calibration laboratories that play a vital role in trade, in product development and manufacturing, and in protection of the consumer. ISO/IEC 17025 is for use by laboratories in developing their management system for quality, administrative and technical operations. The standard states that if testing and calibration laboratories comply with ISO/IEC 17025, the laboratories operate in accordance with ISO 9001. Customers and regulatory authorities may also use it in confirming or recognizing the competence of a laboratory that covers testing and calibration performed using standard methods, non-standard methods, and laboratory-developed methods.
Carotech has successfully met all requirements included in this registration/certification program.
ISO conducted a plant audit to verify compliance with ISO/IEC standards and will conduct periodic audits at Carotech’s facility to ensure continued conformance.
Carotech’s international ISO/IEC 17025 registration reflects the company’s continued commitment to ensuring quality and satisfaction and gives customers the confidence that its facility operates in conformance to established standards and practices.
“We are pleased to be certified under the ISO/IEC program. ISO/IEC’s high standards are a further testimony of Carotech’s uncompromising dedication to quality. We achieved this through rigorous laboratory testing, disciplined QA/QC systems as well as competent personnel, and meticulous manufacturing standards, and thereby assuring our customers the products produced have the identity, strength, composition, quality and purity,” states WH Leong, Vice President of Carotech
