Laboratory Testing, Inc. (LTI) has earned renewal of Nadcap accreditations in Nondestructive Testing and ISO/IEC 17025 compliance with Merit Status. LTI has been awarded 18-month merit status for many years, but received an extended 24-month accreditation term for the most recent nondestructive testing renewal.
“This special recognition is based on the results of our recent nondestructive testing and quality system audits, as well as our past audit history with the Performance Review Institute. We are pleased to be recognized for our competency in nondestructive testing and the strong quality program we have in place here at LTI,” said Frank Peszka, Director of Quality.
Laboratory Testing Inc. has been Nadcap accredited in nondestructive testing for liquid penetrant testing, magnetic particle inspection and ultrasonic testing methods since 1992. LTI was first accredited for materials testing in 1994 and now has a scope that covers an extensive list of chemistry, metallography and mechanical testing methods such as elemental analysis, spectroscopy, wet chemistry, microhardness, corrosion, heat treating, stress rupture, tensile, fracture toughness, specimen machining and evaluation of welds. The current accreditations are valid through January 31, 2016 for nondestructive testing and April 30, 2015 for materials testing. Copies of the Nadcap certificates are available on the Laboratory Testing website.
Nadcap is the Performance Review Institute’s aerospace industry accreditation program, which helps ensure that aerospace manufacturers and suppliers meet certain quality requirements to support safety, quality and reliability of products and services within the realm of aerospace. The Performance Review Institute was created by SAE International in 1990 and performs their accreditation process in accordance with SAE Aerospace Standard AS7003.
