ISO 17025
In May 2010, DTS Michigan was accredited to perform calibration services that conform to ISO 17025. Many test labs worldwide follow ISO 17025, which are the official international standards for 'General Requirements for the Competence of Testing and Calibration Laboratories'.

ISO/IEC 17025, initially published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in 1999, takes the quality management systems from ISO 9001 and adds requirements specific to test laboratories. This includes many technical requirements such as uncertainty and best measurement capability, and accreditation and regular audits by a certified agency. There are several accreditation agencies worldwide. DTS Michigan has been accredited by A2LA, a leading U.S. agency and member of ILAC.

The ISO 17025 calibration and reporting process is much more detailed and complex than standard calibration services and requires, among other things, listing every measurement in the "As Received" condition as well as the "As Returned" state. For example, the ISO 17025 calibration report for the TDAS G5 DAS module is now 25+ pages as compared with the 4 page standard report.

Each industry has different standards to follow and many DTS automotive customers require that measurement and reference equipment (such as sensors or DAS) need to be calibrated by an ISO 17025 accredited lab to ensure standardized quality management practices and traceability. As part of the process, DTS requires our reference equipment to be calibrated by an ISO 17025 accredited lab.
