July 15, 2021
QC Laboratories, Inc, Hollywood, Florida, USA, a non-destructive testing (NDT) and inspection lab supporting the Additive Manufacturing, aerospace, defence and space industries, and wholly owned subsidiary of Sintavia, LLC, has achieved accreditation by the American Society of Nondestructive Testing (ASNT)’s new Employer Based Certification (EBC) Audit Program.
ASNT’s EBC Audit Program provides the non-destructive testing industry with an audit and registry programme that ensures NDT service providers and inspection agencies meet the minimum requirements and comply with either SNT-TC-1A or CP-189 through the employer’s written practice. The fourth company in the world to earn this accreditation, QC Labs has successfully completed the required written practice audit, on-site audit and EBC Program panel approval.
Commenting on the accreditation, Jose Crespo, General Manager of QC Labs, stated, “It was important for QC Labs to pursue this accreditation because we’ve held ourselves to the highest standard possible for over fifty years. Validation of that is essential to our customers’ satisfaction. This new ASNT programme affirms the proper qualification and certification of our workforce and shows that quality is built into every part of our company.”
