RABQSA Announces Laboratory Assessor Accreditation

Published: Tuesday, March 7, 2006 - 23:00

RABQSA and the Canadian Association for Environmental Analytical Laboratories (CAEAL) recently established an industry-specific laboratory accreditation scheme for Canadian assessors. The scheme provides recognition to assessors who provide Canadian laboratory accreditation assessments based on ISO/IEC 17025. It’s a continuation of the first assessor scheme specifically designed for laboratory accreditation.

“We are extremely pleased with the added value and credibility this certification scheme brings to Canada’s laboratory accreditation activities,” says Ned Gravel, CAEAL quality and training manager. “This RABQSA scheme will allow us to expand our pool of certified assessors, and to provide an approach that is not used by other accreditation bodies, all for the benefit of our members. We are proud to be able to offer this certification as a quid pro quo for their volunteer activities as assessors.”
