Our laboratory is a DAkkS calibration laboratory and is accredited to DIN EN ISO 17025, a comprehensive quality management system that acts as a seamless continuation of other systems such as ISO 9001. By achieving this accreditation, we demonstrate proof-of-expertise in the calibration activities that we perform and are authorized to issue internationally recognized DAkkS calibration certificates. The accreditation is the key to high quality measurements, international comparability, and trust in both the work of the calibration laboratory and the transparency of results.
With the DAkkS calibration certificate issued by Hellma you prove traceability to a higher standard (NIST) as is required by the family of standards DIN EN ISO 9000 and DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025.The calibration certificates are thus an important document and metrological basis for measuring and test equipment monitoring in the context of quality management.
The 3 pillars of a DAkkS accredited calibration laboratory:
In the Hellma Analytics calibration laboratory, which is accredited according to DIN EN ISO 17025, we manufacture certified reference materials based on the regulatory codes issued by NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology), ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) and Pharmacopeias (Ph. Eur., USP). All certified measurement results can be traced back to NIST (photometric accuracy) or to PTB (Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt) (wavelength accuracy) standard reference materials. (photometric accuracy): NIST SRM® 930e, NIST SRM® 1930. Hellma 666S300; wavelength accuracy: Hellma 667005.
