ISO 17025 Milestone - Game...Set...and Match!

On Friday, April 10th, 2015 the Cherney team was notified that another milestone had been achieved by our Clovis, New Mexico laboratory...our ISO 17025 Accreditation from A2LA (certificate 2986.03) was issued!

The ISO Accreditation Journey

"Life’s a journey, not a destination” is a cliché that is frequently heard in various contexts. From Cherney’s perspective, this cliché is also very fitting to describe accreditation. Cherney has been n ISO 17025 accredited testing laboratory since early 2010 and we continue to march on our accreditation journey each and every day.
