Case Study: Federal Highway Administration requires laboratories accredited by ILAC MRA signatories conduct crash tests on roadside hardware

Federal Highway Administration requires laboratories accredited by ILAC MRA signatories conduct crash tests on roadside hardware

Testing of crash mitigation equipment and devices need to be tested in accordance with Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) specifications by a laboratory accredited by an ILAC MRA signatory accreditation body.

The FHWA determined that using accredited laboratories will improve the agency’s ability to trust that crash test laboratories are qualified to conduct and evaluate tests intended to determine the crashworthiness of roadside safety features. FHWA also determined that laboratory accreditation is widely recognised as a reliable indicator of technical competence.
