Scopes

Scope of Accreditation

The Scope of Accreditation is a formal document issued by L-A-B to accredited laboratories. The Scope is the expression of calibration parameters, testing technologies, ranges, parameters, uncertainties for which accreditation has been granted. The laboratory prepares the “Proposed Scope of Accreditation” as a part of its initial application and renewal application. The Proposed Scope is a working document and is not an indication of accreditation status. Therefore a proposed scope shall not be shared with any entity other than L-A-B or its authorized representatives. When accreditation has been granted, L-A-B will issue an approved final Scope of Accreditation.
