SoftDEL BACnet Testing Laboratory achieves ISO accreditation
April 6, 2010 - The SoftDEL operated BACnet Test Laboratory (BTL) is now ISO17025:2005 accredited. The lab which has been in operation for over three years is open to accepting BACnet devices to be certified for world-wide markets. ISO accreditation demonstrates that SoftDEL Systems has successfully completed the ISO evaluation process, including an assessment of the laboratory’s compliance with the A2LA Information Technology Program Requirements.

ISO 17025 is the international standard by which a laboratory’s commitment to quality is evaluated. SoftDEL Systems achieved this accreditation by demonstrating technical competence for product compliance testing with the BACnet building automation protocol, and for the operation and effectiveness of its laboratory. ISO 17025 not only considers management and technical expertise, but also emphasizes continual product and process improvement.

“Building owners and operators depend on thorough testing of BACnet building systems to ensure the highest performance and reliability available,” said Duffy O’Craven, BTL Manager. “In addition to our globally recognized testing process, we are very pleased to have an independent evaluation of our testing facility recognize that we deliver high-quality testing facilities and services to members of BACnet International.”

Andy McMillan, President of BACnet International and President of Philips Teletrol, commented on the newly achieved accreditation, “Achieving ISO accreditation further affirms BACnet International’s commitment to providing users and suppliers with the best possible conformance and interoperability testing for BACnet devices.”
