Quality & Accreditation – Ultra Trace
At Maxxam, we have complete confidence in every piece of data we generate due to our stringent Quality Management System (QMS). Our QMS encompasses both quality assurance and quality control.
Currently, there are more than 40 people on the QMS staff and they are responsible for carrying out the monitoring, training and documentation required. To ensure independence, integrity and effectiveness of their function, this group reports to the National Director of Quality Assurance who reports directly to Maxxam’s CEO. The Quality Program is designed to comply with or exceed the data quality objectives of the industry, Canadian Regulators, U.S. EPA and the International Standards Organization (ISO/IEC 17025).
As part of our commitment to quality, Maxxam has obtained various accreditations and is regularly audited to maintain the approval of the accreditation bodies that are important for our customers, including: DOD, NELAC, U.S. EPA, ISO and SCC.
