ISO 17025 accreditation provides major advantages for Avery Dennison customers as it eliminates the need for additional testing by in-house or third party providers. This is especially beneficial in the automotive and durable goods segments, where ISO 17025 is often a built-in original equipment manufacturers (OEM) specification.
“Avery Dennison’s Ohio Innovation Center is one of seven Global Innovation Centers where we focus on creating innovations that meet our customers’ current needs and to anticipate future desires,” said Mark Alessandro, global R&D durability engineering manager, Avery Dennison Label and Graphic Materials. “Our effort to earn ISO 17025 was sparked by specific feedback provided by customers during these activities.
“In knowing our test methods are ISO 17025 accredited, OEMs gain confidence in our data and products, which strengthens the trust and relationships with their suppliers, in turn our customers,” Alessandro added.
In addition to its ISO 17025 accreditation, the Innovation Center in Mentor is also ISO 9001 accredited and UL and BS 5609 certified.
