BOC’s facility at Holbrook in Sheffield has been awarded accreditation to ISO/IEC17025 as a testing laboratory by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS).
This is in recognition of its exceptionally high level of technical competence in analytical testing as well as its ability to meet the stringent standards set by UKAS.
BOC, a member of The Linde Group, has for many years produced calibration gas mixtures to ISO/IEC 17025 for use in highly regulated areas such as environmental monitoring, legal metrology and fiscal measurement. This latest accreditation means the company can now offer customers – not only in the UK but globally – sampling and testing services for certain aviation and breathing standards including liquid oxygen, liquid nitrogen and compressed air.
“We are delighted with this new accreditation as a testing laboratory,” said Nick Ward, Head of Special Products at BOC. “It enhances our reputation for competence in sophisticated gas analysis and makes us one of an elite number of organisations offering this kind of gas analytics. This award reaffirms BOC’s position at the forefront of gas technology.”
