2017 ISO9001 Certification Renewal

Published 02/02/2017

Gannon & Scott Inc.’s analytical laboratory has completed renewal of the ISO9001 Quality Management System certification process.

This was particularly important since it includes compliance to the new certification standard version (ISO9001:2015) that will become mandatory by 2018.  Gannon & Scott completed the external audit without any noted system non-conformances.

This month also marks a decade since the laboratory received initial certification, as it pursues the outgoing effort for continual quality improvement.

The laboratory conducts traditional fire assay, instrument, and other analyses to determine precious metal  content from a wide variety of materials including industrial scrap, metal finishing residuals, and electronic waste.

Gannon & Scott has long been deeply involved in the International Precious Metals Institute and its Sampling and Analytical Council.
