Reference Materials Producers Accreditation Program

The A2LA Reference Materials Producer Accreditation Program demonstrates competence by formal compliance with a set of internationally-recognized criteria.

The program also provides users of reference materials, such as testing and calibration laboratories, with increased confidence that relied-upon reference materials are being produced in accordance with specified technical and management system requirements and are of appropriate quality.

On November 1, 2016, ISO 17034:2016 became publicly available. The Asia Pacific Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (APLAC) has implemented a three-year transition period from the date of publication.

As such, all APLAC Mutual Recognition Arrangement (MRA) signatories, including A2LA, must accredit their Reference Material Producers (RMPs) to ISO 17034:2016 no later than November 1, 2019.
