If you want to have your facility certified to ANSI/ESD S20.20-2014, our Facility Certification Program is what you need. An ESDA-accredited ISO9000 certified body that has met the requirements of this program conducts the audit. The individual certification bodies set the certification and auditing costs, so you must contact a certification body directly to inquire about pricing. However, they all follow the same auditing process defined by EOS/ESD Association, Inc. You can find a list of all EOS/ESD Association, Inc. accredited certification bodies at https://www.esda.org/certification/eosesd-association-esd-facility-certification/ansiesd-s20-20-accredited-certification-bodies/. You can find more detailed information about Facility Certification here https://www.esda.org/certification/eosesd-association-esd-facility-certification/.
If you want to design, implement, and maintain an ESD Control Program, we offer the seminar FC340: ESD Program Development and Assessment (ANSI/ESD S20.20).
