Accreditation for Characterization Labs

Is accreditation appropriate for a characterization lab? Our lab is about characterization; we don't do conformity assessment. We subject our UUTs to various conditions to determine their response. But we still need to demonstrate high competence to accurately and precisely measure the parameters that we manipulate. Does the nature of our lab affect or alter anything about our anticipated accreditation?

Could you elaborate more specifically why you are concerned that an ISO 17025 accreditation could be disruptive to the service you are providing?

I have no concerns about accreditation being disruptive to what we do. We recognize that compliance with the requirements will improve our competence in all that we do. I'm just trying to figure out how to define our scope since we don't do much in the way of defined testing and therefore we can't list any specific tests, just parameters that we measure.
