ARLINGTON, VA-The ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board/ACLASS has awarded its first accreditation certificate for ISO/IEC 17020, the international standard for inspection bodies, to Damarc Quality Inspection Services LLC. Damarc is a boiler/pressure vessel inspection agency based in Dresser, WI.

Under the ACLASS brand, the organization accredits ISO/IEC 17025 testing and calibration laboratories, ISO/IEC 17020 inspection bodies and ISO Guide 34 reference material producers.

The awarding of its first ISO/IEC 17020 certificate marks the expansion of ACLASS accreditation services to include inspection bodies, in addition to those for testing and calibration laboratories and reference material producers.

“We have moved into a complementary line of business with our other accreditation programs,” says Keith Greenaway, ACLASS vice president. “It’s exciting to have accredited our first organization to ISO/IEC 17020 and the first organization within the boiler/pressure industry to earn this accreditation.”
