Note that Instron combined two separate NVLAP accreditations into one. Previously, our field and factory operations were covered by NVLAP lab codes of 200301-0 and 105023-0. All of Instron North America's calibration facilities are now covered under one certificate and designated as lab code 200301-0.
Our NVLAP accreditation also covers our CEAST product verifications, which had previously been accredited by A2LA. The Signatory List, identifying all individuals qualified by NVLAP to perform 17025 calibrations, is available upon request.
