Scientific Control Laboratories, Inc. Achieves “Merit Status” for NADCAP Laboratory Accreditation

Chicago, IL – Scientific Control Laboratories (SCL) has earned renewal of their A2LA and Nadcap accreditations in ISO/IEC 17025 quality management and testing services with the honor of receiving Merit Status. SCL will have an extended 24-month accreditation term for the most recent renewal by the auditors from the National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program (NADCAP) certification for Quality Systems, and Chemical Processing for Independent Testing Laboratories.


“We have grown over the past couple of years and merit status is a special recognition that is important to us and affirms our quality programs,” stated Aishwarya Krishnamoorthy, Quality Manager for SCL.

Merit status allows SCL to be rewarded with less frequent audit schedules, and associated costs. It demonstrates the trust that the aerospace industry has in SCL’s independent testing services.

SCL has been a Nadcap accredited laboratory since 2008 and A2LA- ISO17025 accredited since 1995.

SCL has a scope of testing services that covers an extensive list of chemical, metallography, and mechanical testing methods such as salt fog testing, cleanliness, elemental analysis, spectroscopy, wet chemistry, microhardness, thickness, abrasion, adhesion, and failure investigations.
