Sterigenics International has received ISO/IEC 17025:2005 food and chemistry accreditation in Mexico.

ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accreditation signifies that the SteriPro laboratory can carry out the necessary microbiological and chemical tests consistent with standards necessary to meet customer needs.

The accreditation builds on BSI Certifications for ISO/IEC 9001:2008, ISO 13845: 2003 and EN ISO 13485:2012.
