TIRI offers standard testing and calibration services, including 23 testing services and 4 calibration services, all of which conform to ISO/IEC 17025 international standards. All 27 items have been certified by the Taiwan Accreditation Foundation (TAF). TIRI can provide combined ILAC-MRA Mark calibration reports recognized internationally (80 economies and 90 accredited institutions). Each year, TIRI issues more than 200 test and calibration reports.

Vacuum Standard Laboratory (TAF Lab No.: 0081)

TIRI's Vacuum Standard Laboratory is the first facility of its kind to receive CNLA calibration certification. This laboratory serves industry, government, academia, and research institutions, and it issues over 100 calibration certification reports each year. Furthermore, this is the only laboratory in Taiwan to perform optical calibration related to film reflectance and film transmittance (KG 3005); it provides comprehensive spectrum measurement services to academic and industrial users. These laboratories employ scanning probe microscopes and scanning electron microscopes to provide pitch standard calibration services in the ranges of (100 - 10,000) nm and (100 - 2,000) nm (KA 2014) respectively. Calibration results are based on the weights and measures of international institutions such as Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) from Germany and National Physical Laboratory (NPL) from the UK. Thus, domestic testing laboratories can benefit from these results and save substantial calibration costs and waiting time (3 to 6 months) of sending samples overseas. In response to customers' instrument calibration needs, TIRI also provides customized, high-precision pitch standard (standard deviation < 0.3%) services, which contributed to TIRI receiving the 8th R&D Creativity Award for Measurement Science and Technology as well as the 9th and 11th Outstanding Measurement Engineer Award from the Chinese Metrology Society.

Electro-Optical Measurement and Calibration Laboratory (TAF Lab No.: 1529 and 2340)

This is the first laboratory to apply for TAF accreditation after TIRI became a member of NARLabs. This facility receives two laboratory accreditation numbers because it offers certification items including calibration and testing. The three certification items consist of gloss standard plate (KG 3027), radius of curvature (O 999), and refractive index (O 005). It is the first laboratory in Taiwan to offer certified testing reports for items as radius of curvature and index of refraction. This laboratory advocates the policy of ensuring precision quality, being innovative, showing respect for others, and positive teamwork.

Biomedical Platform Laboratory (TAF Lab No.: 3291)

Biomedical Platform Lab (TAF number: 3291): There are 19 certification items for electronics medical devices, including “power input test”, “humidity reconditioning test”, “legibility of markings”, “durability of marking test”, “low voltage reliability”, etc.; standard specification and test method for metallic bone plates is for flat bone plate only. Our laboratories embrace the goal of providing the best quality and credible services. In addition to our internationally recognized measurement services to domestic and foreign industry, academic, and research institutions, TIRI has also established a solid foundation for the development of instrument technologies with the calibration capability. It is expected to further perfect Taiwan's technological standards and product quality.
