Wichita State University’s (Wichita, Kan., USA) National Institute for Aviation Research (NIAR) reports that it has earned accreditations to ISO/IEC 17025-2005 and ANSI/NCSL Z540-1-1994.

 The American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) ISO/IEC17025:2005 accreditation verifies that NIAR meets “general requirements for the competence of calibration and testing laboratories.”

NIAR also chose to seek accreditation to the American national standard ANSI/NCSL Z540-1-1994 as an optional accreditation. 

The accreditations are required in order for NIAR to do business with certain organizations. They increase NIAR capabilities for current clients and open doors to new potential clients. 
“NIAR has always maintained high quality standards, but it was time to adopt a globally recognized system,” said Tom Aldag, director of R&D. “Implementation of standard processes is reassuring to both new and long-term NIAR clients. The industry has evolved to expect this level of commitment and attention to quality.”



The National Institute for Aviation Research at Wichita State University supports the aviation industry by providing research, development, testing and certification services to manufacturers, government agencies and education entities.
