Quality & Security

Our accreditation.

We are accredited for the following areas according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018:

  • Local Interconnect Network (LIN)
  • Controller Area Network (CAN)
  • Automotive Ethernet

The accreditation is valid for the scope of accreditation listed in the annex [D-PL-18596-01-00].

The details of the scope of our accreditation can be found in the certificate and the associated annex!

Accreditation. The confirmation of competence.

The German Accreditation Body (Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle ,DAkkS) describes accreditation as follows:

‘[…] In contrast, accreditation is the confirmation, reserved solely for the state, of the technical competence of a conformity assessment body – i.e., for example, a certification service provider – to perform certain activities.’
from: https://www.dakks.de/de/was-ist-akkreditierung.html

Accreditation thus involves a formal confirmation of competence in a precisely designated area.

Further explanations can be found in a very understandable and clear way on the pages of the German Accreditation Body (Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle, DAkkS).

Not only are the terms and the accreditation procedure explained, but current information and documents on the subject are also provided.

DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025. Our quality standard.

The title of the international standard DIN EN ISO 17025:2018 in the German edition is General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories.

The year after the colon refers to the year of issue of the respective version of the standard.

DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 is specifically aimed at the technical competence of testing laboratories – as we are one – and calibration laboratories.

Incidentally, in addition to the specific requirements for testing laboratories and their competence, it includes the requirements of EN ISO 9001 (see DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018, section ‘Introduction’).

Validity of accreditation.

Our accreditation on the basis of DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 theoretically has no expiration date.

However, the prerequisite is that the results of the regular assessments by the German Accreditation Body do not contradict this.

You can read this on the page of the German Accreditation Body (Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle, DAkkS).
