IntaForensics transition to ISO/IEC 17025:2017

5 June 2019

After a whirlwind two weeks of intensive UKAS assessments, IntaForensics are extremely proud to announce more successes. We are delighted to have received a recommendation for transition to ISO 17025:2017 and also successfully accomplish a 4-year re-assessment of all our extensive activities in our Scope of Accreditation. Formal re-accreditation to ISO 17025:2017 is subject to satisfactory clearance of assessment findings.

Todays announcement follows the fantastic results from last week where we received an Extension to Scope recommendation for Griffeye Analyse DI https://www.griffeye.com/ including Lace Carver by BlueBear https://bb-les.ca/solutions/ into our Computer Forensic Analysis activities, the only UK Forensic service provider to now hold this activity.

 

It’s incredibly rewarding to see the team’s commitment and engagement with the assessment process and the benefits it brings to the laboratory. On a personal note, it’s even more satisfying knowing that our standards are maintained and 17025 is ‘Business as Usual’ for IntaForensics – Kay Murfin (Quality Manager)
