January 19, 2006
Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Ottawa, Ontario
RABQSA and the Canadian Association for Environmental Analytical
Laboratories (CAEAL) are pleased to announce the establishment of
an industry-specific laboratory accreditation assessor scheme aimed
at providing recognition to assessors engaged in Canadian laboratory
accreditation assessments based on ISO/IEC 17025.
"This scheme is unique in that it represents the continuation
of the first assessor scheme specifically designed for laboratory
accreditation," said Michael Carmody CEO, RABQSA. "The
engagement with CAEAL has set the benchmark for other industry-based
schemes in North America, and will provide a base for the development
and improvement of assessment practices in Canada and beyond. The
cooperation and engagement of CAEAL management and staff on this
project was commendable," said Carmody.
"We are extremely pleased with the added value and credibility
this certification scheme brings to Canada's laboratory accreditation
activities," said Ned Gravel, CAEAL Quality and Training Manager.
"This RABQSA scheme will allow us to expand our pool of certified
assessors, and to provide an approach that is not used by other
accreditation bodies, all for the benefit of our members."
"Our assessors have been internationally recognized as some
of the strongest in the world. We are proud to be able to offer
this certification as a quid-pro-quo for their volunteer activities
as assessors," explained Gravel.
Applications for RABQSA certification to the CAEAL Assessor certification
scheme are available via the RABQSA web site www.rabqsa.com. CAEAL
Assessors certified by RABQSA will be listed on the RABQSA international
register and will receive a Certificate and wallet card.
Further details can be gained by contacting the RABQSA Coordinator
