ISO 17025 is an international standard; A2LA is an accreditiation source. A2LA can confirm that a lab meets the standard and issue accreditiation credentials to that effect.

If you look at the bottom of this page there is a list of related threads, including one where I asked a very similar question a few years ago.

Oh, and JSW correctly confirms the answer I got in my thread. No surprise there.

Each lab needs to determine if it requires accreditation under ISO/IEC 17025, and in many cases it may.....if a testing or calibration, almost certainly.

A2LA is one of six, I repeat, six accrediting bodies currently recognized in North America. The six are: IAS, NVLAP, SCC/CLAS, L-A-B, A2LA, and ACLASS.

Since you are in Mexico, I recommend contacting EMA, the Mexican accrediting body. Unless you have a pressing reason to use one of the other six, then EMA is likely your best option.

Hope this helps.

Oh, one last note.....if you have a pressing reason to use one of the six recognized accrediting bodies outside Mexico, then talk to ALL SIX.....not just to A2LA.
