Izolyator high-voltage equipment testing center is additionally accredited to ISO/IEC 17025:2017
On 16 May 2022, the testing center for high-voltage equipment at the Izolyator Production Complex was accredited by the Association of Analytical Centers ‘Analitica’ in accordance with the requirements of the international standard ISO/IEC 17025:2017.
The Association of Analytical Centers ‘Analitica’ is an independent, non-governmental body for the accreditation of testing laboratories. The Association is a full member and participant of the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) Mutual Recognition Arrangement, a full member and participant of the Asia Pacific Accreditation Cooperation Incorporated (APAC) Mutual Recognition Arrangement. All signatories of agreements recognize the results of each other's accreditation on the basis of mutual trust.
Accreditation confirms the technical competence and functioning of the Izolyator test center management system.
Accreditation by the Analitica Association expands and complements the scope of accreditation and the technical competence of the Izolyator test center. This will allow testing a wider range of high-voltage equipment manufactured in Russia. The ISO/IEC 17025:2017 standard contains requirements for laboratories, the fulfillment of which will allow demonstrating the competence and ability to obtain reliable results, as well as recognition at the international level.
The international standard ISO/IEC 17025:2017 'General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories' was developed with the aim of strengthening confidence in the activities of laboratories.
