As the holder of the A2LA’s ISO/IEC 17025:2017 Test Laboratory Accreditation Certificate #2142-01-A2LA, Empirical is recognized as capable and qualified to perform testing and evaluation of medical devices in compliance with ASTM/ISO guidelines in the area of finished medical devices. Empirical achieved this accreditation Dec. 2, 2003. More international regulatory agencies require testing to be performed by an ISO 17025:2017-accredited lab to meet their standards for clearance/approval. This accreditation has provided Empirical with a competitive advantage by reducing costs, establishing credibility and improving efficiency for our clients.
While some lab accreditations involve only minimal review of a laboratory’s qualifications, an A2LA-accredited lab must meet rigorous internationally recognized standards. The A2LA annually audits and inspects Empirical, ensuring our lab meets testing, calibration and quality standards set by the organization, which is recognized by more than 30 federal, state and local government associations.
