Have a look at the quality management system implemented at IPT, its quality policy, its ISO 9001 certification, and the accreditation of its calibrations and tests.
For Laboratory Services
Pursue the ongoing improvement of production processes by maintaining and perfecting an effective quality management system that meets the requirements of NBR ISO 9001 and NBR ISO/IEC 17025 standards, with emphasis on employee qualifications and commitment, as well as the ongoing adjustment of methods and equipment.
For the Development of Computerized Systems
Seek the ongoing improvement of production processes by maintaining and perfecting an effective client-oriented quality management system that meets the requirements of the NBR ISO 9001:2000 standard, with emphasis on employee qualifications and commitment and the continuous improvement of work methods.
Participation in laboratory networks (INMETRO and REMESP)
The tests and calibrations performed at IPT’s laboratories are accredited by national and international organizations, in accordance with the NBR ISO/IEC 17025:2005 standard – General competency requirements for testing and calibration laboratories.
The Laboratories of Electrical and Optical, Mechanical Metrology, Electrical Metrology, and Flow Equipment are accredited by the Brazilian Calibration Network (Rede Brasileira de Calibração - RBC/INMETRO).
The following laboratories are accredited by the Brazilian Network of Test Laboratories (Rede Brasileira de Laboratórios de Ensaios - RBLE/INMETRO): Mechanical and Structural Equipment; Electrical and Optical Equipment; Fuel and Lubricants; Textiles and Apparel; Wood and Wood Products; Building Environment Technology (Fire Safety, Building Installations, Sanitation, Construction Components and Systems, and Environmental Comfort and Sustainability of Buildings)
The laboratories of Chemical Analysis, Paper and Cellulose, Textiles and Apparel, and Electrical and Optical Equipment are recognized by the State of São Paulo Metrology Network (Remesp).
All these processes result from the recognition, by the respective oversight organizations, of the competence and ability of these laboratories to conduct technically valid measurements.
By accrediting a laboratory, the National Institute of Metrology, Standardization and Industrial Quality (Cgcre/Inmetro), which manages the Brazilian Certification System (SBC), recognizes the laboratory’s technical competence and its quality management system, thus ensuring traceability to appropriate measurement standards. This Institute is Brazil’s representative at the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC).
