SAMSUNG Electronics Gains International Accreditation Standard for Quality Assurance Laboratory in Record Time

ONDON, UK - March 6, 1998 - Samsung's European Quality Assurance Laboratory (SEQAL) based in Yateley, Hampshire is today being awarded the internationally recognised NAMAS (National Association of Measurement and Sampling) accreditation certificate, which incorporates EN 45001, ISO/LEC Guide 25 and BSEN ISO 9000, by Bryan Smith, Chairman of the UK Accreditation Service. SEQAL has gained accreditation six months after first beginning the application process - which normally takes around 18 months to complete.

Previously, only Samsung's own-branded and OEM (Original Equipment Manufacture) electronic products could be tested at the centre.

"Gaining NAMAS accreditation will make SEQAL a world-class facility," explains Carlos Perkins, EMC Manager. "We will now be empowered to start testing all kinds of electronic products for other companies - and we will need to hire more test engineers."
