Fanshawe College is proud to announce that the Canadian Centre for Product Validation (CCPV) has achieved a major milestone in supporting business and industry in the region.

On February 19, 2020, the CCPV received notice of its successful accreditation in accordance with the recognized International Standard ISO/IEC 17025:2017 for competence in the field of mechanical testing from the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA). More specifically, accreditation has been granted to CCPV to perform Salt Corrosion, Low Temperature, High Temperature, Humidity and Plastic Tensile tests on plastics, metals, rubbers, coatings, paints, greases, lubricants, adhesives, hydraulics, electrical components, explosives, restrained glass, protective clothing and textiles.

"This is a major accomplishment for CCPV," said Bruce Smith, Chief Executive Officer of CCPV. "The accreditation opens up more opportunities for CCPV and, more importantly, provides business and industry from across the region with more options in terms of meeting their product testing requirements from an accredited lab. The successful accreditation represents CCPV's and Fanshawe College's commitment and continued investment in Ontario's innovation economy."

The CCPV has been meeting the product testing and validation services of business and industry in Ontario and the U.S. since June 2016.
