The two auditors who attended were once again impressed by the efficiency and friendliness of the team. The new operating system was commended for providing excellent traceability and storage of information and no non conformities were found.
UKAS accreditation to ISO 17025 is evidence that AnchorCert are competent, follow correct procedures and gather appropriate data to continually validate consistent results. The demands of the auditors are rigorous and AnchorCert is one of only two gemmological laboratories in the world to have achieved this accreditation. It is a fantastic achievement for everyone involved and particularly significant for AnchorCert, underlining its professional standards at a time when many in the industry are questioning the validity of diamond certificates from other organisations.
