As of September 2018, Instron’s Calibration Laboratory in Norwood, MA USA (NVLAP Lab Code 200301-0) expanded its global reach to include Europe into its existing operations. This addition enables Instron to provide accredited calibration services to its customers in North America, Europe and Asia under a single National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP) accreditation.
Instron’s Calibration laboratory is accredited to ISO/IEC 17025 for the calibration of Force, Angularity, Length, Electromagnetics, Time & Frequency, Hardness, Temperature, and Pressure by NVLAP, a program administered by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
The NVLAP coverage includes both Instron’s in-house calibration services and field calibration services. The biggest change to Instron’s coverage is that the company’s Limited Calibration Laboratory in the UK – previously accredited to ISO 17025 for Force, Extension and Hardness by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS), Laboratory Number 0019 – is now part of the Instron Calibration Laboratory in Norwood covered under the NVLAP certificate.
