Würth Elektronik eiSos has successfully accredited its global Quality & Design Center in Shenzhen (China) in accordance with ISO/IEC 17025. This is an important step for the company as the investment for the accreditation ensures the highest quality standards for product durability and high process reliability. The Quality Design Center was built in 2009, close to one of the manufacturing locations of this globally active company.
This laboratory inspects the quality of the raw materials and the final goods, which are leaving the Asian production lines. To represent the high standards in the quality laboratory officially, the ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation process was initiated and completed in March of this year.
Laboratories accredited based on this standard show that their technical systems and methods are able to carry out accurate and repeatable laboratory tests. The test results are recognized among ilac-MRA accredited laboratories. Accreditation, like certification, is based on conformity with standards, but also on the requirement of being able to perform special repeatable laboratory tests. To guarantee this standard for the future, internal audits and conformity tests are conducted on a regular basis.
