Accreditations

Retlif’s involvement in laboratory accreditations is historical. Retlif was the first laboratory to petition the U.S. Government (NIST) to develop an EMI laboratory accreditation program. Today, Retlif remains fully committed to meaningful, well-administered and technically appropriate laboratory accreditations.

Our accreditations are extremely broad in scope and are based on the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025, as administered by the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP), the Laboratory Accreditation Bureau (L-A-B), and the Performance Review Institute (PRI-NADCAP).

Retlif’s formal quality system and test service accreditations include the following:

EMI/EMC electrical testing at our three (3) primary test facilities (Ronkonkoma-NY, Goffstown-NH and Harleysville-PA) is accredited by NVLAP.

Environmental and mechanical simulation testing at our Ronkonkoma, NY test facility is accredited by L-A-B.

Physical and mechanical testing of high-strength plastic composites at our Composite Prototype Center in Plainview, NY is accredited by L-A-B.

Physical and mechanical testing of high-strength plastic composites at our Composite Prototype Center in Plainview, NY also carries a secondary accreditation through PRI-NADCAP.

Beyond formal accreditations, RETLIF also maintains recognized status on multiple listings, approval and recognition programs, including:

  • American Bureau of Shipping
  • Defense Electronics Supply Center
  • Defense Security Agency
  • Federal Communications Commission
  • Industry Canada
  • Lloyds Register
