SIAD involved in the success of ACCREDIA-DT for the EA-MLA Agreement signing

15 Jan 2019


Since January 2001, the SIAD Research Laboratory has been recognized as an Accredited Calibration Laboratory - LAT Calibration Center No. 143 and subsequently also as a Manufacturer of Reference Materials RMP No. 143.

With the inspection visit carried out in November 2018, thanks to the experience, technical expertise and high know - how, in the preparation and analysis of traceable metrological mixtures, SIAD obtained:

The transition to the new UNI CEI EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018 edition as Accredited Calibration Laboratory, for the gravimetric and analytical calibration of LAT gas mixtures and for the calibration of equipment for analytical measurement;

The transition from ISO Guide 34 to UNI CEI EN ISO/IEC 17034:2017 as a Manufacturer of Reference Materials, for the production of Certified Reference Materials (CRM).

The SIAD Research Laboratory was sampled as a Manufacturer to receive a visit from the joint Accredia, EA and ILAC teams.

The EA, together with the ILAC, evaluated Accredia-DT during its inspection visit at the SIAD laboratory, RMP No. 143.

The possibility of carrying out this visit allowed ACCREDIA to be evaluated to extend the mutual recognition agreements also to the RMP, EA MLA (Multilateral Agreements).

The evaluation of ACCREDIA ended with a positive recommendation to this effect. Subsequently, a global agreement as ILAC MRA (Mutual Recognition Arrangement) will be recognized between EA and ILAC.

Also thanks to the tangible and important contribution given by SIAD, the evaluation chain ended with a positive recommendation: Accredia will be added to the European bodies (the British Ukas and the Dutch RVA), which have also passed the verification to sign the EA MLA Agreement.

Finally, the verification report issued by Accredia highlighted the excellent knowledge of the methods and operations of all the technical staff for both the LAT Center and the RMPn Manufacturer. 143.

The result achieved by the Italian system in this field, and therefore also by SIAD, is an element of pride for the Country and for the entire Company.
