The National Composites Certification and Evaluation Facility (NCCEF) is an independent ISO 17025 accredited test laboratory (test centre No 4566). The accreditation is assessed by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) against a suite of international ASTM composite material test procedures. This demonstrates the competence, impartiality and performance capabilities of the NCCEF laboratory.
We have proven to our customers that we have been successful in meeting the requirements of international accreditation standards and consequently give them confidence in an increasingly diverse global marketplace by ensuring consistently high standards in the quality of our products and services. We are active partners with National and International committees to develop standardized test methods for composite materials thus ensuring we are fully up-to-date with the correct standards.
Whilst currently outside the scope of the ISO 17025 accreditation, the test laboratories are supported by a wide variety of industrially relevant NDE and composite manufacturing processes including the world class X-ray tomography capability housed in the Henry Moseley Laboratory of the University of Manchester.
