ISO 17025 Certification, TEC Services, Inc.TEC Services, Inc. is pleased to announce ISO 17025 certification for testing in our treestand laboratory.  This complements our ISO certification in the cement, concrete, and aggregate laboratory.

The International Standards Organization for Testing and Calibration Laboratories is something we have been involved in for some time.  Certification with ISO is highly regarded both nationally and internationally as a reliable indicator of technical competence.

The technical competence of a laboratory depends on a number of factors, including:

  • Qualifications, training and experience of the staff
  • Correct equipment - property calibrated and maintained
  • Adequate quality assurance procedures
  • Appropriate and valid testing procedures and methods
  • Traceability of measurements to national standards
  • Accurate recording and reporting procedures
  • Suitable testing facilities
With accreditation, the laboratory is demonstrating that these requirements, amongst others, have been and continue to be met.

By utilizing simulated tree poles as specified in ASTM, we are able to test the load capacity of tree stands.
