F218 � Scope of Accreditation Selection List: Plastics Testing by Dofz1YtU


									        F218 – Scope of Accreditation Selection List: Plastics Testing Laboratories

To apply for A2LA accreditation for plastics and related products tests, each applicant must
identify every applicable standard or reference document for which accreditation is sought. If you
would like to be accredited for a standard that is not listed (including company test methods),
identify the standard by designation and short title in the space provided or on a separate
attachment. If you wish to seek accreditation for the ISO equivalent of an ASTM method, please
indicate the ISO test method designation by the equivalent ASTM method. This list is intended to
supplement the Chemical (F205) and Mechanical (F214) Scope of Accreditation Selection Lists.
