Frontier Global Sciences (Formally, Frontier Geo-Sciences Inc.), an internationally recognized leader in the testing of heavy metals, announced today it was awarded what is considered the Apex of laboratory accreditations, ISO 17025.
ISO 17025 is a standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). ISO 17025 was developed so that testing and calibration laboratories could be recognized for their capabilities and areas of competence. All measurements and decisions are based on accurate, repeatable, verifiable, cost effective, timely, believable, measurements, opinions, and recommendations. ISO 17025 helps assure this happens first time, every time, and on-time.
Specifically, ISO 17025 gives guidance to laboratories on quality, management, technical requirements and recognizes excellence in operations. In addition, the accreditation promotes continual improvement of management systems, allowing for greater focus on customer satisfaction. This award spotlights Frontier’s commitment to delivering services of the best quality to its customers based on the highest internationally recognized practices and procedures.
Accredited Laboratories can offer the highest level of reassurance to their customers that all data and opinions, upon which they rely, can be traced backed through an unbroken chain of data based on ISO 17025.
Expanding regulations in the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, cosmetics, and consumer products industries for heavy metals testing, have created additional demand for low level trace or heavy metals testing. Frontier Global Sciences offers a variety of services designed specifically to test for toxic metals in consumer products.
ISO 17025 accredited laboratories, like Frontier global Sciences, provide the industry with the confidence they need to produce quality data to help meet those requirements.
