You may have noticed that ANAB has a few changes to their requirements for testing laboratories – specifically calibration and forensic testing – that have just been recently updated.

 

All of the previous requirements remain with one exception* listed below. Plus there are some new ones.

And here at Qualtrax we have all the new accreditation requirements in our library!

That means that if you are a current Qualtrax customer and want the new accreditation requirements imported into your system, contact Qualtrax Support at support@qualtrax.com. If you are a hosted customer, let us know which requirements you want and we’ll do the rest. For on-premise customers, you will also need to schedule a time with our team to access your server to complete the import.

In case you haven’t seen them yet, here are ANAB’s newest accreditation requirements, effective June 1st, 2017:
