International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation



National Cooperation for Laboratory Accreditation (NACLA)

NACLA is a voluntary cooperation of regulators, specifiers, accreditation bodies and laboratories performing scientific testing to work toward a common goal:  standardization of laboratory accreditation throughout the US.  NACLA is the only cooperation in which regulators and specifiers play an active role in the formulation of ISO 17011 compliant evaluation criteria, which culminates in the recognition of accreditation bodies evaluating compliance with ISO 17025, ISO 17020 and ANSI/NCLS Z540.3.
