ASHEBORO, NC – Plastics Color Corporation (PCC) is proud to announce that its laboratories in Illinois and North Carolina successfully completed renewal of ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation by American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA), receiving high marks for technical competence and compliance throughout the company’s laboratory systems.
PCC said both laboratories completed the audits with zero findings. The outcome indicates superior performance and unmatched attention to detail by the laboratory staff. The ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation is the gold standard used worldwide to demonstrate competency to produce precision testing and calibration data.
“Congratulations to all the lab employees. This was a very difficult audit to undergo, with extensive documentation and live assessment testing,” said Quality Systems and Regulatory Affairs Manager Jennifer Presnell. “Our top-notch crew demonstrated dedication and expertise while working through this process. We are very proud of them for maintaining a high level of competency. This accreditation helps to set us apart from our competitors.”
Developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), the accreditation is a voluntary, third-party review process to ensure quality through ongoing evaluations and assessments. In a joint statement, the ISO, the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) and the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) said, “A laboratory’s fulfillment of the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025 means the laboratory meets both the technical competence requirements and management system requirements that are necessary for it to consistently deliver technically valid test results and calibrations.”
