Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT
Federal Register: September 24, 2007 (Volume 72, Number 184)] [Rules and Regulations] [Page 54210-54212]
The FHWA is revising its regulation that establishes the general requirements for quality assurance procedures for construction on all Federal-aid highway projects on the National Highway System (NHS).\1\ Specifically, the FHWA will require accreditation of laboratories that conduct crash tests on roadside hardware by an accrediting body that is recognized by the National Cooperation for Laboratory Accreditation (NACLA) or is a signatory to an International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) Mutual Recognition Arrangement (MRA), an Asia Pacific Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (APLAC) MRA, or another comparable accreditation body approved by FHWA. This rule will improve the agency's ability to determine that crash test laboratories are qualified to conduct and evaluate tests intended to determine the crashworthiness of roadside safety features. Laboratory accreditation is widely recognized as a reliable indicator of technical competence.

[Federal Register: September 22, 2004 (Volume 69, Number 183)] [Notices] [Page 56818-56819]
SUMMARY: The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) announces that it will use the National Cooperation for Laboratory Accreditation (NACLA) Recognition process for determining whether an accreditation program is comparable to the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials' (AASHTO) Accreditation Program for use in quality assurance procedures for laboratories performing sampling and testing of materials used in the construction of Federal-aid highways on the National Highway System. In order for the accreditation program to be considered comparable, the accreditation body must be recognized by NACLA with a scope that includes the ``Technical Requirements for Construction Materials Testing.''

A few QUOTE(s) from a paper by Malcolm Smith … prior NACLA board member and current Executive Vice President for NCSLi.
“Which reminds me to say to those of you who worry that it might be; NACLA isn’t in the business to “dumb down” accreditation. It’s in the business to build it up.” He continues:
The most important item that has stayed with me as it is our horizon.
“And NACLA can work with those willing to work with it. There’ll be a ton of opportunities to do this. For now, there’s little need to worry about those who won’t or for whatever reason don’t want to.”
Our Operational Motto: Build Based on Value
