CMEC Policy for ISO/IEC 17025

CMEC requires all measuring and test equipment having a significant effect on the accuracy and validity or the test results shall be calibrated by a calibration agency accredited to ISO/IEC 17025.

Use of the CMEC Accreditation Symbol

When you complete the accreditation process, there are a variety of ways you can display your accreditation status. First, we will provide you with a certificate that displays the tests you are accredited for. We will also add your laboratory to a database, allowing customers to search for you based on the accreditations that you have gained.

CMEC will also grant you permission to use the CMEC Accreditation logo in reports, stationery, publications and other forms of media where you may want to highlight your accreditation. On certain documents, you may need to distinguish between tests that you are accredited for and those that are not. 


Along with our logo, you may add the CMEC Accreditation Symbol to your website which will provide you with an easy way to let competitors, customers and your own staff know that you are proud of your accreditation status.


Example: 

Our construction materials testing laboratory is accredited through the CMEC Accreditation Program and formally recognized as having the necessary quality management system in place to conduct tests in line with the standards and guidelines specified by AASHTO R18—the “Recommended Practice for Establishing and Implementing a Quality Management System for Construction Materials Testing Laboratories.”
