ENAC Certification ensures that the laboratory meets the necessary quality and technical standards to reach top level in calibrating instruments for industrial processes
ENAC (National Accreditation Entity) accredited CAT according to standard UNE-EN ISO/IEC 17025: 2005 (CGA-ENAC-LEC) more than 20 years ago.
Certificates issued by Calibración Asistencia Técnica meet the requirements and are basic documentation in ISO 9000 Quality System Audits. The ENAC Mark is the mean by which accredited bodies publicly declare compliance with accreditation requirements. Certificates and reports without the Accreditation Mark, or reference to the accreditation, cannot be considered as “accredited documents” and therefore, they do not benefit from these advantages.
Users will easily recognise issued documents resulting from accredited activities (test reports, certificates, etc.) through the ENAC mark. Its presence in reports and certificates assures the benefits provided by the accreditation, including international acceptance through agreements at international level.
ENAC mark means QUALITY and COMMITMENT
ENAC is a signatory of all Multilateral Recognition Agreements (known as MLA) established at international accreditation-bodies forums: European co-operation for Accreditation (EA), International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) and International Accreditation Forum (IAF). They can be reached after having overcome a strict evaluation process carried by these organizations, which is repeated regularly. With their signature, accreditation bodies assure the equivalence of their accreditation systems and therefore, of activities by accredited organizations, promoting confidence and acceptance across borders of the information provided by accredited evaluators, regardless of the country in which they are.
In this way, technical barriers are significantly reduced, and even eliminated, in the form of complementary controls or reports, which Spanish products and services can find in the destination country when being provided with a certificate accredited by ENAC. Currently, more than 70 countries, among them are the whole of the EU and EFTA as well as the USA, Canada, Japan, China, Australia, Brazil, India, etc., have signed these agreements. Only accredited organizations shall use the ENAC mark or reference to the condition of accreditation.
These agreements are a technical support to international trade allowing reports and certificates issued by accredited organizations, and products and services covered, to be easily accepted in international markets, thus contributing to the elimination of technical barriers and to the reduction in evaluation costs.
