LEA’s quality system meets requirements of French and international standards.
LEA is accredited by COFRAC, France’s accreditation body signatory to ILAC MRA** in the field of calibration of ionizing radiations, in accordance with ISO 17025:2017. LEA’s traceability to the International System of Units (SI) is performed through calibrations with LNHB (Laboratoire National Henri Becquerel), France’s National Metrology Institute (equivalent to NIST in the US). LNHB is also accredited by COFRAC in the field of calibration of ionizing radiations. Both NIST and LNHB are signatories to CIPM-MRA***, meaning NIST and LNHB mutually recognize the validity of their calibrations and certificates. Therefore, through both COFRAC accreditation and calibrations traceable to LNHB, LEA certificates provide the same traceability to SI as NIST traceable certificates.
Therefore, every year several internal and external audits are carried out by independent organizations and contribute to ensure optimal quality.
