Accreditation is recognized in all the member countries of the European Union and in EFTA under the agreement for mutual recognition (MLA), and worldwide under the multilateral international agreement for mutual recognition (ILAC arrangement). Accreditation of the laboratory attests the technical competence of the personnel, use of appropriate instrumentation, the impartiality of the testing engineers and of the technical reports issued by the laboratory. It also certifies that organisation of the laboratory conforms to the management and technical requirements of standard ISO/IEC 17025. A test laboratory accredited to standard ISO/IEC 17025 is assessed both on its Quality System and on its technical competence in specific tests. An ISO 9001 certified company is assessed on its Quality Management System.
Certification of conformity of SINT Technology’s Quality Management System to the requirements of standard UNI EN ISO 9001:2008 by DNV (Det Norske Veritas).
The certification covers the following fields of application:
- Mechanical, electronic and software design engineering for prototypes of new machines
- Design and construction of test facilities and data acquisition systems
- Noise level, vibration, turbo-machinery performance and strain gauge measurement services
- Evaluation of the uncertainty of measurement systems
- Calculations and services for reporting on CO2 emissions.
Recognition of SINT Technology by CIC-PND (the Italian Coordination Centre for Non-Destructive Testing) as an examination centre (for stain gauge measurement) for first and second-level certification for electrical resistance strain gauge testing engineers
Inclusion of SINT Technology in the register of highly qualified laboratories authorised to conduct research and development for small and medium sized enterprises by MIUR (the Ministry of Education, Universities and Research).
