This accreditation program is designed to satisfy the requirements of contractors, state and local governments, and federal agencies specifying accreditation for laboratories that conduct acoustical testing. Accreditation is available to any acoustical testing laboratory.

Proficiency Testing Requirements

There is no established proficiency testing program for the acoustical testing accreditation program. However, laboratories are required to participate in interlaboratory comparisons (ILCs) sponsored by standards organizations (ASTM International, ANSI, etc.) when the laboratory is accredited for the test method that is being used in the ILC.
