The American Association for Laboratory Accreditation has renewedKeithley Instruments' ISO 17025 accreditation for the company's completion of the A2LA reaccreditation evaluation. As part of the A2LA test, Keithley has also been accredited to the new ANSI/NCSL Z540.3-2006 America standard.

The ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation proves that Keithley's metrology services meet the requirements of this international standard, demonstrating its technical competency to carry out the high-level calibrations that are essential for many of the company's sensitive instruments.

Helga Alexander, Keithley's metrology services manager, says Keithley is among the first to become successfully accredited to the new ANSI/NCSL Z540.3-2006 American standard.
