At Nicol Scales & Measurement quality and safety are our top priorities. We earned our ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accreditation for our Dallas and Houston branches in 2000, and we were awarded with our final accreditation to both ISO/IEC 17025:2017 and ANSI-Z540 standards in 2020. We pride ourselves on an industry leading EMR (Experience Modification Rating), $6,000,000 of liability insurance and third party safety and regulatory certifications from multiple independent agencies. We welcome customer audits to review our documented safety training program or our quality system.
Nicol Scales & Measurement earned our ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accreditation in 2000. Our Dallas and Houston branches are accredited by Perry Johnson Laboratories. Perry Johnson was granted international recognition status on May 21, 2009 when they were accepted as an APLAC and ILAC MRA signatory for their calibration program.
We have completed our assessment to the new ISO/IEC 17025:2017 standard, and we have been awarded with our final accreditation. In addition, our scope of accreditation nearly doubled to 23 pages after this audit.
Our Management team recognizes that not all of our customers require the ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accreditation and that quality is important to everyone in today’s extremely competitive industrial market. Therefore we were also awarded with the ANSI-Z540.1 accreditation during our recent audit. This assures customers that no matter their calibration needs, we will meet or exceed their quality systems’ requirements.
Nicol Scales & Measurement is constantly updating our scope of calibrations and verification. If you don’t see your items in this list, please give us a call. If we can’t calibrate it, we will find someone who can.
