Corpus Christi Lab was recently awarded the accreditation ISO 17025
SGS Corpus Christi operates a dedicated oil, chemical, and natural gas testing laboratory, and office. The facility is fully staffed with laboratory and inspection personnel who provide SGS customers with over 90 testing methods for crude oil, petroleum refined products (including diesel and gasoline), LPG, natural gas, ethylene, aromatics (including benzene, pygas, xylenes and cumene), and other petrochemicals and hydrocarbon products. Test methods include ASTM, ISO, IP, and other industry standards.
In an effort to continue to provide the highest quality service to our customers, we are pleased to announce that the SGS Corpus Christi laboratory was recently awarded expanded ISO 17025 accreditation by the ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB). The ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board is the largest multi-disciplinary accreditation body in North America and plays an important role in ensuring the safety and quality of goods and services and in protecting the environment.
“This is a major accomplishment considering the amount of test methods added to the scope. We are recommended for the scope approval which will include full gasoline and diesel testing,” said Robin Day, Quality Manager – Laboratories, Oil, Gas, & Chemicals Services.
This expanded accreditation allows for more robust traceability and is of particular importance for customers exporting goods to Mexico, where this type of accredited testing is a requirement.
The certificate of accreditation for the Corpus Christi laboratory has been assessed by the ANAB and meets the requirements of international standard ISO/IEC 17025:2017 while demonstrating technical competence in the field of testing.
Stephen Hughes, USA Commercial Laboratory Director for the SGS Oil, Gas & Chemicals business line, said: “This is a great accomplishment for our USA Corpus Christi, quality, laboratory, and management team. ISO 17025 accreditation is a strong validation of our commitment to providing professional, quality work for our customers.”
Not only is this ISO 17025 strong validation, but it is also the single most important standard for calibration and testing laboratories around the world. This is a voluntary, third party-reviewed process that ensures a laboratory’s quality management system is thoroughly evaluated on a regular basis to guarantee continued technical competence and compliance with ISO 17025.
SGS is dedicated to ongoing efforts that make us the world's leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company.
