Each service centre offers diagnostic testing and engineering support to its customers to provide them with relevant information to help them make decisions necessary in the management of their critical electrical equipment.
"This accreditation means that wherever our customers are located and regardless of the diagnostic centre they use, they can count on a constant compliance test specifications in accordance with ASTM/IEC standards." says Zach Hatch, Director of Operations for Weidmann Diagnostics.
ISO/IEC 17025 indicates that Weidmann diagnostic laboratories formally demonstrated a specific technical skill to produce accurate test data. The standard assesses the technical competence of employees, the validity and appropriateness of test methods, abidance of measurements and calibrations to national standards, handling of test samples and test data quality assurance.
Jeff Goolgasian, President of Weidmann Diagnostics said: "The ISO certification has made us a better organisation but we we're not satisfied. During this period we have also invested in a system of laboratory automation which directly connects many of our tests with our system of laboratory information management, eliminating most of the manual offline calculations and data entry. The savings in productivity helped offset some of the additional costs associated with the ISO and improve our accuracy even more. When a test provider is needed, the ISO and laboratory automation should be among the key criteria...the benefits are indisputable."
