Boxborough, MA, June 11, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Intertek, a leading quality solutions provider to industries worldwide, today celebrates World Accreditation Day. The International Accreditation Foundation (IAF) and International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) established this day to raise awareness for the importance of accreditation activities. This year’s theme focuses on the role of accreditation for delivering confidence in the provision of energy.
“As emerging markets become more globally advanced and regions continue to develop with a global ecosystem, Intertek believes in the importance of ensuring organizations take measures to use energy efficiently and without damaging resources for future generations. We are proud to help clients meet this need through standards such as ISO 50001 and ISO 14001. When an organisation practices good energy management, top management and employees become more aware of how energy is used, the actual cost of energy, and the methods and equipment that can be used to control and reduce energy waste,” said Calin Moldovean, President of Intertek’s Business Assurance group.
Intertek’s energy provisioning is dynamic in that it works with organizations across the entire power generation cycle, from energy creation to distribution through final consumption. New products and technologies that bring sustainable energy sources to millions of people are tested in Intertek’s accredited laboratories by the organization’s experts around the world. Constantly working toward innovative solutions, the company’s technical leaders develop new battery chemistries that store energy for longer periods and safely power devices such as automobiles and industrial equipment. More specifically, these experts also test the products and communication networks that make the smart grid and smart home possible; ultimately, this reduces energy consumption overall and making it more cost-effective.
In addition, Intertek laboratories perform state-of-the-art physical properties testing and chemical analysis to specific industry standards and protocols, including ASTM, IP and ISO, on a wide range of materials and products for clients across the world. Quite often, a laboratory or test method must also conform to specific quality standards and accreditations, such as ISO-17025.
On World Accreditation Day, Intertek recognizes those companies who display their commitment to excellence in quality and safety through the use of testing, inspection and certification. Each day, Intertek’s experts partner with global organizations that seek to demonstrate the quality of their people, their processes, and their assets.
