You’re presented with a quote for repair/servicing, testing, calibration and an IANZ certificate- so you understand what all this means except what’s an IANZ certificate - why do I need one, how does it compare to a traceable certificate or just a ‘calibration certificate’ and why should I care!?
IANZ stands for International Accreditation New Zealand a crown entity – they report to government. A calibration certificate from an accredited laboratory meets national and international standards and is recognised globally.
IANZ gives your organisation peace of mind and a level of confidence and security. New Zealand companies have been certifying gas detectors for years but best practice has not always been implemented.
Teltherm has adopted the ISO:17025 Standard and become IANZ endorsed in order to provide the New Zealand market place a facility that is the benchmark for repair, testing, servicing and certification.
This gives employer’s peace of mind that they have taken every practicable step to ensure the safety of their employees.
Accreditation is formal recognition that an organisation has been independently assessed / audited in five key areas:
Yes, usually it may cost a little more but some laboratories in NZ charge more for a non IANZ certificate than Teltherm charge for a fully endorsed IANZ calibration certificate.
A company may tell you they are good at maintaining and certifying personal gas detection equipment while an IANZ accredited company, because it has been independently audited, can prove this is so.
NZ company directors and their management teams are now legislated to take more responsibility for safety & risk/hazard reduction - IANZ offers peace of mind to these governing bodies as it recognises facilities using only best practice.
