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 email@example.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.
