An ISO 17025 accreditation is maintained by the testing laboratories. As the largest developer of voluntary International Standards, ISO (International Organization for Standardization), is made up of 163 member countries. International Standards provide the requirements to which bodies that provide services or products must adhere.
ISO provides different accreditations according to the particular field in which entities operate. An ISO 17025 accreditation is presented in the case of a DNA testing laboratory that is deemed worthy. This is a guarantee that the latest state of the art equipment in our laboratories is handled by a scientific team that holds the highest qualifications in the field. To maintain the highest standard of testing, accreditation calls for an external auditor to monitor the DNA test at every process that it is subjected to.
NATA (National Association of Testing Authorities, Australia) is the entity that tests and provides accreditation for bodies that provide services and products in Australia.
