June 4, 2015:
TRC is officially a fully accredited organization.
The annual meeting of the Source Evaluation Society (SES) is held every spring. The STAC General Meeting is open to all and held in conjunction with the SES Annual Meeting. This meeting is still in the planning stage for Spring 2016 at the Grand Hotel Marriott Resort, Golf Club and Spa in Point Clear, Alabama..
The 2016 STAC Annual Member Meeting exact time and location will be posted on the SES 2016 SSSAAP Conference site.. .
The 2015 annual STAC Annual Member Meeting was held at the JW Marriott Tucson Starr Pass, Tucson, AZ, USA.
So far A2LA has received 22 applications from STAC. Of those 22, we have had one assessment completed, one more scheduled, 9 applications in the process of being updated before assessments can be scheduled, 6 that were in the middle of being assessed by STAC so we will circle back to them next year, a couple that have been purchased by a larger company so are in the middle of restructuring, a couple we have not yet heard from, and 1 that has decided not to move forward with the accreditation process. Of the AETBs that are moving forward, most are choosing to be assessed to ASTM D7036 alone and 2 are applying for ISO 17025/FSMO as well.” From Lauren Smith of A2LA
That is all that I can think of for the moment. I will let you know as soon as I receive word from the TAB regarding the two AETBs that are close to approval.
