Testing Laboratory Accreditation - IANZ (International Accreditation New Zealand)

Fletcher Steel’s testing lab is fully IANZ accredited for the testing of Metals and Metals Products within a Scope of Standards as specified on its certification here.

IANZ is New Zealand’s premier accreditation body. An organisation that holds IANZ accreditation can have confidence in its processes and thereby provide assurance to its customers and clients. IANZ is a full signatory member of the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) and the regional body, Asia Pacific Accreditation Cooperation (APAC). Accreditation is normally granted only for work that is performed regularly and for which organisations are properly equipped and have demonstrated their competence. The scope of accreditation will, therefore, vary with the range and complexity of work carried out, the competence and experience of staff and the level of technology available in the organisation.

In granting accreditation, IANZ will specify the following details in the scope of accreditation:

  • The products and services provided
  • Test/inspection methods used
  • For testing laboratories, either measurement uncertainties or limits of detection for some types of tests.
