Apply for accreditation for the testing/calibration activity detailed in the documents to be downloaded.
The cost of accreditation is specific to each laboratory. Costing is dependent on the scope of accreditation, which determines the number of assessors that are used on the job and the amount of man-hours it takes to complete the job.
Experience shows that in Jamaica the initial assessment, the first phase of the accreditation cycle, usually takes between 2-4 days and uses between 1-2 Lead Assessors and 1-4 Technical Assessors depending on the proposed accreditation scope. Your cost therefore for your initial assessment should vary between J$581,600 and J$1,339,600. In order for JANAAC to calculate the cost of your accreditation, you must submit your accreditation scope.
Applicants should review the relevant requirements and standards that pertain to their facilities and the accreditation being sought and ensure that these are understood and fulfilled to the best of the applicant’s ability, before submitting the completed Application Form and Questionnaire for Laboratory Accreditation. An application fee of US$1,000 is required with the return of your Application Form. Kindly contact JANAAC for an invoice.
