Retlif: A history of Accreditations Leadership
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 transfer to ANAB was done to streamline and consolidate our Retlif accreditations under one Accreditation Body (AB), thereby reducing the need for multiple and redundant annual assessments. In addition, this allowed for a common scope of accreditation for all EMC facilities, allowing Retlif to better meet our customer needs through more efficient scheduling between our 3 EMC/EMI facilities.
Recognized nationally and internationally as a leader in accreditation, ANAB is signatory to numerous international mutual recognition arrangements including:
- International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC)
- InterAmerican Accreditation Cooperation
- Asia Pacific Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation
ANAB is nationally recognized by many U.S. government agencies including:
- FCC: Federal Communications Commission
- US Coast Guard
- US Department of Homeland Security
- US Department of Defense
