Why ISO/IEC 17025:2017?

ISO/IEC 17025-2017 Accreditation is the single most important standard for calibration laboratories in the world.

Accredited laboratory’s have demonstrated to an independent Accreditation body technical proficiency and the ability to reliably produce precise and accurate calibrations. Key elements of the accreditation include:

  • Traceability of measurements and calibrations to national standards
  • Technical competence and proficiency of staff
  • Maintenance and calibration of test equipment by other Accredited laboratories
  • Quality assurance of calibration data
  • Validity and appropriateness of test methods

What does this mean for Denowatts members? Deno sensors calibrated after March 3, 2020 carry the ISO/IEC 17025:2017 Accreditation, including a Calibration and Measurement Capability (CMC) of 1.1% of Reading, including the Deno dual pyranometers and complete sensing and logging function. The result is that when Denowatts is deployed to work for your solar assets, this accreditation brings the highest level of calibration bankability to performance benchmarking.
