ASNT Certification Services LLC Successfully Completes Renewal Audit for ISO 17024
10 May 2023
(Columbus, OH) The ASNT Certification Services LLC (ASNT CS) announces that the Certification and Accreditation Department recently completed a renewal audit for the ISO 17024: Conformity assessment – General requirements for bodies operating certification of persons by the ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB). The certification covers some of ASNT CS’s nondestructive testing (NDT) certification programs and provides global recognition among other NDT programs worldwide.
The ANAB accreditation mark is widely recognized as a symbol of excellence by employers, industry leaders, hiring managers, and credential holders across the globe. ANAB’s personnel certification accreditation program, which began in 2003, has aided certification programs in elevating their standards from good to exceptional.
ANAB employs a process for accrediting certification bodies that adheres to the international standard (ISO/IEC 17011). This rigorous and internationally recognized accreditation process ensures that ANAB conforms to the highest accreditation standards and represents the best practices in the field of accreditation.
“The Certification and Accreditation team handled an aggressive audit schedule with flying colors,” said Paul Lang, ASNT Certification Services LLC Executive Director. “The ANAB audit team remarked that our team was very professional, knowledgeable about our programs, and did a fantastic job presenting the required material that showed evidence of a properly implemented program. During the out brief, we were notified of only one nonconformance; from my years of experience as an auditor and being audited, it is unusual to have only one nonconformance. This is a testament to the organization’s understanding of the program requirements and their proper implementation.”
