"Heather Wade served as the A2LA Assessor for one of our locations and she was able to clearly identify areas that needed work. She did not merely come in and identify areas of deficiency, but also areas where we are strong! Heather's attention to detail is unparalleled and her candor is refreshing!"

Your trusted advisor for ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation.
At Heather Wade Group, we believe labs needlessly suffer becoming ISO/IEC 17025 accredited on their own. I’ve seen the time delays and extra costs that good labs have from assessment deficiencies that would have been easy problems to prevent. In their excitement to become accredited, they now must learn on their own how to fix the deficiencies. Good labs can have significant expenses due to the extra time & costs to fix assessment deficiencies. Putting them further behind in reaping the boosted revenue and growth of being 17025 accredited. Labs who hire trusted advisors, who are experienced in the field, have smoother and faster accreditation than those who don’t.
