Keithley accredited to the new ANSI/NCSL Z540.3-2006 American standard

09 September 2010 - Keithley Instruments, Inc. has announced that its Metrology Services department has successfully completed a ISO 17025 re-accreditation assessment by A2LA (American Association for Laboratory Accreditation). As part of the A2LA assessment, Keithley has also been successfully accredited to the new ANSI/NCSL Z540.3-2006 American standard.

The ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation recognizes that Keithley’s Metrology Services meet the requirements of this international standard, demonstrating its technical competence to carry out the very high-level calibrations that are essential for many of the company’s sensitive instruments. Customers can be assured that their instruments are being calibrated to the highest industry standards and will provide consistent, quality measurements. Routine calibrations help avoid downtime and prevent costly quality problems.

Helga Alexander, Keithley’s Metrology Services manager, noted, “Given that ISO 17025 remains the single most important metrology standard for test and measurement instruments, Keithley’s accreditation to this standard ensures that customers can rely on us as an equipment and calibration vendor. In addition to getting our existing technical scope reaffirmed, which exhibits some of the best resistance and low current measurement uncertainties in the country, we were able to add a simulated temperature parameter to our technical scope of accreditation. We are also among the first to become successfully accredited to the new ANSI/NCSL Z540.3-2006 American standard.”

Alexander noted that adding this new American standard to the company’s list of accreditations is particularly important for a company servicing the government and military sectors.
