ISO is a non-governmental organization that promotes the development of standardized methods to facilitate the international exchange of goods and services. ISO accreditation reduces inefficiencies and puts mechanisms in place for continuous improvement of laboratory processes and procedures.
Through accreditation, the Scientific Services Division (SSD) achieves third-party recognition of its quality results, which promotes acknowledgement and respect for our laboratories' technical competence by industry and other agencies, both nationally and internationally. The Beverage Alcohol Laboratory (BAL), Tobacco Laboratory (TL) and the Compliance Laboratory (CL) maintain ISO 17025 accreditation through the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA).
