What Sets GAAS ApartApart

Our technically skilled and knowledgeable assessors know how to engage in a courteous, congenial, and meaningful manner. This is how working with GAASmakes the difference. The way we serve our customers sets us apart from others.

We believe in a partnership approach to assessments. Throughout the accreditation process, GAASfocuses on customer needs while ensuring that all requirements are met. We've been in business since 1989, having recognized early on the need for accreditation bodies to oversee the work of third-party conformity assessment bodies and thus provide credibility and confidence for those who rely on tests, calibration results, and certification.

GAAS’s accreditation programs include ISO/IEC 17025 calibration and testing laboratories, ISO 15189 medical and clinical laboratories, ISO/IEC 17065 product certification bodies, ISO/IEC 17020 inspection bodies, ISO/IEC 17043 proficiency test providers, and ISO 17034 reference material producers. GAASalso provides accreditation for integrated accreditation to multiple standards and many industry-specific programs.
