Sub Contractor Facility type

When a facility is specified as a Sub Contractor does MetTeam provide a pre-defined method for designating the Sub Contractor approval?  For example, accreditation or other method used to approve the particular sub contractor for use?

In MetTrack, we have added each approved sub-contractor as an asset.  This allowed the use of the Calibration record to track accreditation or other approval.  This also caused the sub contractor to show up on traceability reports, which is a very handy thing with auditors and often saves having to look up each item individually to prove traceability to an approved calibration lab.

Since 17025 requires the maintenance of a register of approved sub contractors, I would expect this approval to be built into MetTeam but, if so, I haven't found it to be ovbious yet.
