Security technology manufacturer Paxton has gained UKAS accreditation for its in-house public-facing product test facility.
This makes Paxton one of the leading commercial EMC test laboratories, with the added benefit of short lead-times.
UKAS visited Sussex-based Paxton’s UK headquarters in Brighton to carry out a formal assessment of EMC Test Facility which originally opened in August 2019.
The government-appointed agency assessed Paxton’s ability and competence in performing product testing including an audit of the quality management system.
The state-of-the-art facility has now been officially granted UKAS accreditation, confirming that it meets the ISO 17025 standard for Laboratory Accreditation.
Brett Glass, Paxton’s Compliance Manager has overseen the development of the facility. He explains:” We are extremely proud to have gained UKAS accreditation. For any manufacturer looking for the highest possible quality and level of testing, this is the accreditation they want and need.
“Gaining it has been an in-depth and worthwhile process. Our Compliance team has been working towards it for some time whilst testing our products and that of many manufacturers from the South East of the UK.”
