THE SYSTEM SCALE DIFFERENCE
At System Scale, “Quality You Can Measure” isn’t just a slogan, it’s a way of life. Because we strictly adhere to ISO 17025 standards, you will have peace of mind that your calibrations and paperwork are always correct, compliant, and safe.
The Importance of ISO 17025 Accreditation
System Scale is proud to have achieved ISO 17025 accreditation. This is the global standard for testing and calibration laboratories, indicating that labs are technically proficient, produce consistent, highly accurate results, and comply with ISO’s highest quality management protocols.
Labs that are certified to ISO 17025 compliance ratings have passed rigorous testing. Without ISO accreditation, many suppliers and regulatory authorities will not accept test or calibration results.
ISO 17025 accreditation is a voluntary, third-party review process that assesses a laboratory’s ability to produce precise, accurate tests and calibrations, including factors such as:
- National standards
- Technical staff competence
- Equipment upkeep
- Test and calibration data quality assurance
- Validity of testing methods
- Appropriate item handling
- Test environment quality
What is the difference between NIST (standard calibration) and ISO 17025?
NIST (The National Institute for Standards and Technology) maintains the master for various measurements, including standards like pound, foot, and second along with units for environmental measurements like temperature and pressure. At System Scale, we calibrate all instruments to NIST for guaranteed precision. You can find more information on NIST at nist.gov.
ISO 17025 is an international standard that shows a company is technically competent and can produce accurate, precise test and calibration results. ISO 17025 is the most rigorous quality standard in the measurement industry. Most calibration providers have not achieved this standard, but System Scale is proudly ISO accredited.
With System Scale, you will always receive the highest quality approach. We offer three tiers of service, depending on requirements:
Standard Scale Check With Calibration Summary: For scales that do not need pinpoint accuracy and projects that do not require extensive documentation.
ISO 17025 With Detailed Certification (Scale and Lab): For precision lab equipment or industrial scales requiring the highest level of testing and ISO documentation. This service ensures complete accuracy and includes mechanical, thermodynamic, electrical, and other devices.
Custom Calibration Services: For non- scale testing, including elevator capacity checks, rigging and strap testing, stage capacity testing, and more.
