Weymouth, MA, October 30th
EMSL Analytical, Inc. is proud to announce that its Weymouth laboratory has recently been accredited by the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP) for bulk asbestos analysis. Weymouth is now the second EMSL laboratory in the state of Massachusetts to receive this accreditation, in addition to Woburn, MA. The Weymouth laboratory was created as a result of EMSL’s acquisition of two MA asbestos laboratories from TRC Solutions in April of 2018 and the Weymouth location was added to EMSL’s network of laboratories at that time.
Through the NVLAP program, EMSL Weymouth is now in accordance with International Standard ISO/IEC 17025. This certification demonstrates technical competence for a defined scope and the operation of a laboratory quality management system. The laboratory can now accept and test samples for asbestos in bulk insulation and bulk building materials.
“We are proud to be able to expand our asbestos testing services throughout the state of Massachusetts,” said Joe Frasca, Senior Vice President of Marketing at EMSL Analytical, Inc. “Having two laboratories with NVLAP accreditations, we can ensure the highest quality of service when it comes to asbestos testing in the greater Massachusetts area. Between our Weymouth and Woburn locations, we offer PLM, PCM and TEM methods of testing for our clients and future customer.
In addition to this new NVLAP accreditation, EMSL Weymouth is accredited by the American Industrial Hygiene Association Laboratory Accreditation Program (AIHA-LAP, LLC) Industrial Hygiene Proficiency Analytical Testing (IHPAT) Program Participant for asbestos. The laboratory is also certified for bulk asbestos analysis by AIHA-LAP, LLC Bulk Asbestos Proficiency Analytical Testing (BAPAT) Program.
