MAY 13, 2009 -- JGR Services Inc. (search Lightwave for JGR Services), a calibration and repair laboratory and manufacturer of test and measurement instrumentation, has received ISO:17025:2005 Laboratory Accreditation for Calibration of Fiberoptic Instrumentation. JGR Services says it is one few companies to receive this type of accreditation (specifically for fiber-optic instrumentation) in the industry.

JGR Services Calibration Lab has operated a NIST-traceable calibration and repair service for seven years. To earn ISO17025 Lab Accreditation, JGR was required to demonstrate competence in calibration and metrology to an auditing authority involving laboratory comparisons, review of uncertainty measurements, and an audit of calibration processes. More specifically, accreditation to the ISO17025:2005 standard requires that the JGR Services Calibration Lab is performing to the "General Requirements for the Competence of Calibration and Testing Laboratories." These requirements are designed to ensure the highest standard for technical service, quality systems, management, and customer care.

JGR offers three-day and on-site service to minimize the impact of removing an instrument from service. Calibration prices depend on the type and volume of instruments.
