Accreditations

HomeAccreditations

To demonstrate our commitment to quality and technical competence

Compliance Engineering pursued and obtained accreditation from the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA), which is one of the world’s most highly respected accreditation organisations.

A2LA is a signatory to several bilateral and multilateral mutual recognition arrangements (MRA’s) including the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC), the Asia Pacific Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (APLAC), and the InterAmerican Accreditation Cooperation (IAAC).

Accreditations

These agreements facilitate the acceptance of test reports between A2LA-accredited laboratories and 46 economies around the globe.

In addition, A2LA has recognition from over 30 federal, state and local government agencies, companies and associations.

A2LA and NATA (National Association of Testing Authorities) are both signatories to the ILAC MRA and acceptance testing and calibration results from each organisation are mutually recognised.

Compliance Engineerings Certificate Number: 2829.01

Compliance Engineering are accredited to perform the following tests on military, automotive sub-components, information technology equipment (ITE), medical electrical equipment, electric motors, various electronic and electrical components/systems:

In recognition of the successful completion of the A2LA evaluation process, accreditation is granted to this laboratory to perform the following tests on automotive sub-components, information technology equipment (ITE), medical electrical equipment, electric motors, and various electronic and electrical components/systems:
