Cherry Valley, ILLINOIS (October 12, 2023) – Ipsen announces the completion of ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accreditation for calibrations. This achievement allows Ipsen to provide pyrometry services to customers who operate under the National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program (NADCAP) and Aerospace Material Specifications (AMS) 2750G.
A change to AMS2750G, updated in 2022, is the requirement that providers of calibration services be accredited to ISO/IEC 17025:2017. This applies to temperature controller calibration, system accuracy testing (SAT), and temperature uniformity surveys (TUS).
“This lab certification provides assurance to customers that we meet the standards to accurately perform these tests,” said Cavan Cardenas, Ipsen’s Calibration and Pyrometry Coordinator. “It’s important that we maintain and confirm the accuracy of our calibration equipment to support our customers at the highest level possible.”
Cardenas, along with Nate Sroka, Ipsen’s Quality Assurance Engineer, developed and implemented new standards for calibration services over the past year. Using the third-party accreditation body, Perry Johnson Laboratory Accreditation, Inc (PJLA), Ipsen underwent an assessment, receiving official accreditation in early October.
PJLA evaluated the technical competence of Ipsen’s lab testing and calibration services. Attaining accreditation demonstrates Ipsen’s technical abilities and proven quality management systems for pyrometry related services.
In addition to this accreditation, Ipsen also hired a dedicated technician to work in the newly developed Calibrations Lab at Ipsen’s Vacuum Technology Excellence Center in Cherry Valley, IL.
