About the employer

Tyneside Standards Limited was formed in 1995 at the behest of several eminent businessmen based in the Tyneside area who served on the board of Tyneside TEC. They were becoming increasingly frustrated at having to send their equipment to the Midlands and beyond to find the top class Calibration laboratories they sought for their instruments. Thus sending millions of pounds from the North East economy.

So Tyneside Standards was created with the conception being to create a “Centre of Excellence” where Metrology “The Science Of Measurement” was available here in the North East servicing the requirements of Northern Industry and restricting the flow of work leaving the area.

Since the formation in 1995 Tyneside Standards has operated with the same ethos Top class calibrations without compromise! Therefore our first objective when we set up the laboratory was obtaining UKAS accreditation so that we may provide the top class calibrations the businessmen of the North East sought with a certificate bearing the Crown Which renders it a legal document We achieved this distinction within two years of our formation.
