Areva Inc.’s U.S. technical center can now offer equipment qualification services to a range of industries as a result of the company's recently receiving ISO 17025 Laboratory Accreditation.

The accreditation from the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) enables the company’s technical center to provide component testing and calibration services to the aircraft, automotive, consumer electronics, medical, information technology, HVAC and telephone industries.
