Are you a Canadian mineral analysis testing laboratory accredited to ISO/IEC 17025 and CAN-P-1579? A laboratory preparing for an initial accreditation?
If so, don’t miss the Canadian Mineral Analysts (CMA) 2013 Annual Conference and Exhibition coming to Toronto, Ontario on September 22 - 26. A Standards Council of Canada’s (SCC) Carol Campbell, Program Manager, Accreditation Services, will be speaking at CMA 2013 on the latest revisions to Canadian Procedural Document (CAN-P) 1579 to an expected audience of over 200 delegates.
Mineral testing laboratories worldwide use CAN-P-1579 - Requirements for the Accreditation of Mineral Testing Laboratories. CAN-P-1579 has been rigorously reviewed and revised by SCC's Mineral Analysis Working Group (MAWG) over the past year, to magnify and clarify several technical requirements contained within the document. Carol’s talk is expected to help mineral analysis testing laboratories better understand the CAN-P-1579 revisions and make any required changes to their testing. She will also be actively soliciting comments and opinions from CMA 2013 attendees of SCC’s Mineral Analysis Testing program specialty area regarding these revisions.
Learn more at CMA 2013 on how your laboratory can apply for ISO/IEC 17025 and CAN-P-1579 accreditation and be recognized globally for competency in mineral analysis testing.
