Avery Dennison Innovation Center Earns ISO 17025 Accreditation

August 16th, 2017 by Editor

Avery Dennison announced that it has received ISO 17025 accreditation for its Innovation Center, Mentor USA. The accreditation audit was conducted by the American Association of Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) and issued in June 2017. The scope of the accreditation covers 55 laboratory tests, conducted at the Mentor, Ohio facility, for adhesives and pressure-sensitive films and label materials. 

ISO 17025 accreditation eliminates the need for additional testing by in-house or third-party providers, according to the company. This can be beneficial in the automotive, where ISO 17025 is often a built-in original equipment manufacturers (OEM) specification.

“Avery Dennison’s Ohio Innovation Center is one of seven global innovation centers where we focus on creating innovations that meet our customers’ current needs and to anticipate future desires,” said Mark Alessandro, global R&D durability engineering manager, Avery Dennison Label and Graphic Materials. “Our effort to earn ISO 17025 was sparked by specific feedback provided by customers during these activities.”

A2LA is a U.S.-based multi-discipline accreditation body, with more than 30 years of ISO standards and development use.
