Narda Safety Test Solutions makes use of three of the most modern calibration labs, all of which offer accredited calibration in addition to the factory calibration of our instruments. The equipment is accredited by the relevant national accreditation authorities: DAkkS (Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle) for Pfullingen in Germany, A2LA (American Association for Laboratory Accreditation) for Hauppauge, USA, and ACCREDIA (Ente italiano di accreditamento) for Cisano sul Neva in Italy. The laboratories also meet the general requirements for calibration laboratory expertise according to ISO/IEC 17025.
Our calibration lab in Pfullingen, Germany is accredited by the German Accreditation Office DAkkS. The accreditation essentially covers all the measured quantities and areas that are pertinent to human safety and environmental field exposure measurements. The Certificate gives details of the scope of the accreditation.

To receive accreditation from a national accreditation agency, the calibration lab must demonstrate that it meets the “general requirements of competence for test and calibration laboratories” according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005. The accreditation agency tests and certifies that the lab possesses the measuring equipment and the competence and emplys the procedures that guarantee metrological traceability of the calibration and hence international comparability. With an "accredited calibration" you will receive a calibration certificate that is recognized worldwide by all institutions listed by ILAC, the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation, within the framework of a Mutual Recognition Agreement.
