What is the IECQ ITL Scheme?
Independent test laboratories play a key role in the IECQ (Quality Assessment System for Electronic Components) and BS 9000 schemes for the approval of electronic components.
The IECQ ITL Approval scheme is specifically designed for independent testing laboratories who want to carry out tests relating to the series of standards within the IECQ and BS 9000 System.
The approval process looks at the type of tests that can be conducted, the component ranges that can be assessed and the laboratory facilities. To become an approved independent test laboratory, the company must meet the requirements of BS EN ISO/IEC 17025 and the additional requirements for IECQ and BS 9000 Test Laboratory approval.
