ISO/IEC 17025:2005 Expansion of
Certification Scope September 19, 2018

The Hirose Electric Co., Ltd. Testing Center underwent strict examination by The Japan Accreditation Board (JAB) and was accredited as a “Testing Laboratory” and “Calibration Laboratory” based on ISO/IEC 17025:2005. Afterwards, the Testing Center had its accreditation updated and revised (expansion examination). As a result, the certification expiration date for our accreditation was extended until November 30, 2020.

Established at the Hirose Electric Co., Ltd. Testing Center in April 2017, the EMC Laboratory (anechoic chamber, shield room) made it possible to perform EMC measurements. Subsequently, certification for EMC measurements performed using an anechoic chamber was received on July 24, 2018. Certification for an additional six items related to connector testing was also received. The scope of acquired accreditation is shown in the following table.
