ISO 17025 Quality Program

ISO 17025 accreditation provides a strong foundation for a stringent Quality Program at each of Bureau Veritas’ four North American laboratories.

At Bureau Veritas – Oil Analysis, data integrity and quality are clear priorities. Thanks to our rigorous Quality System, our customers can have complete confidence in every piece of data we generate.

Our Quality Team reinforces the Bureau Veritas – Oil Analysis Quality Management System through on-going monitoring, training and documentation. To ensure its independence, integrity and effectiveness, our Quality Team is independent from operation.

Our Quality Program is designed to comply with or exceed the data quality objectives of the industry, ASTM and the International Standards Organization (ISO/IEC 17025). Our stringent quality adherence strategy is supported through participation in our accreditation programs and proficiency testing programs.

Each of our oil analysis laboratories and our Quality System undergo an assessment by an external accrediting body (ANAB) in order to have their policies and procedures approved and accredited. On occasion, oil analysis customers will audit our facilities in order to satisfy requirements specific to their own business. Our own Quality Assurance Department routinely monitors procedures and processes by way of compliance audits, quality system audits and method audits to ensure compliance with accreditation and client requirements.
