|TOYO Corporation was qualified in the "field of high-frequency" as a calibration laboratory, getting the ISO/IEC17025 (hereinafter referred to as 17025) accreditation from the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) on April 21, 2005.
Upon receipt of the accreditation, TOYO Calibration Lab will begin 17025 calibration service for EMI test receivers up to 18 GHz and other high-frequency measuring instruments, which will be the first service of its kind in Japan.
TOYO Calibration Lab extended the upper frequency for its ISO/IEC17025 calibration to 40GHz in July 2009.
|The details of accreditation are shown below.
|What is ISO/IEC17025?|
|ISO/IEC17025 is an accreditation standard established under an agreement between the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), which was issued in December 1999 as a standard succeeding to ISO/IEC Guide 25.
This accreditation means that the receiver has been accredited as a calibration laboratory accepted internationally, which ensures traceability in conjunction with international standards.
ISO/IEC17025 warrants the quality of the calibration and test results, and the accreditation covers one calibration/test object and a specific calibration and test method thereof.
In other words, an authoritative third party strictly examines applicants and gives accreditation to organizations that are acknowledged as having very sophisticated technical capability to conduct specific calibration and tests.
