Nadcap® Accreditation for Non Metallic Materials Testing Has Been Awarded to DatapointLabs
Nadcap® recognizes DatapointLabs for its commitment to continual improvement in aerospace quality

On December 22, 2021, DatapointLabs received Nadcap® accreditation after successfully passing a Nadcap® audit in Non Metallic Materials Testing.

This achievement is important for DatapointLabs as it demonstrates the company’s commitment to delivering the highest standards of materials testing to the industries we serve. "With the increasing reliance on composite materials, particularly in the aerospace sector, it was the right time for DatapointLabs to pursue this accreditation," said Will Liguori, Quality Manager. Our online test catalog has been updated with composites-specific test IDs, which are aligned to standards included in our Nadcap scope of accreditation.

Jay Solomond, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at the Performance Review Institute, said: "The Nadcap audit is tough and it is meant to be. The audit criteria are developed by experts from the aerospace and defense industry who are the best in their field, while the Nadcap audits are conducted by individuals who have dedicated an average of 30 years to their discipline. It’s no wonder then that undertaking a Nadcap audit is hard, but DatapointLabs has met the challenge, and I congratulate them for achieving Nadcap accreditation for Non Metallic Materials Testing. Well done to everyone involved."
