Benefits of SCC accreditation
SCC accreditation demonstrates a laboratory’s competence to manage and perform activities defined by its specific program scope of accreditation. Through SCC accreditation, laboratories are able to obtain independent, third-party, credible test results for themselves and for their customers.
SCC accreditation helps laboratories deliver services with confidence and attract new customers. As a signatory member to several international mutual recognition and multilateral agreements, SCC’s Accreditation Program is internationally recognized.
“Accreditation to the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025 provides the foundation on which our global quality management system (QMS) is built. The principles and requirements of the ISO/IEC 17025 standard provide direction for and governance of our QMS and laboratory testing systems and ensure that we continually improve our services to provide customer satisfaction.” - Valerie Murphy, Quality Systems Manager, SGS Canada Inc.
