National Accreditation Board for Testing & Calibration Laboratories (NABL) is an autonomous society providing Accreditation (Recognition) of Technical competence of a testing, calibration, medical laboratory & Proficiency testing provider (PTP) & Reference Material Producer (RMP) for a specific scope following IEC/ISO17025:2005, ISO 15189:2012, IEC/ISO 17043:2010 [1] & IEC/ISO 17034:2016 [2] Standards. It has Mutual Recognition Arrangements with Asia Pacific Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (APLAC), Mutual Recognition Arrangement (MRA), International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC)

NABL provides accreditation in all major fields of Science and Engineering such as Biological, Chemical, Electrical, Electronics, Mechanical, Fluid-Flow, Non-Destructive, Photometry, Radiological, Thermal & Forensics under testing facilities and Electro-Technical, Mechanical, Fluid Flow, Thermal, Optical & Radiological under Calibration facilities. NABL also provides accreditation for medical testing laboratories. In addition, NABL also offers accreditation for Proficiency testing providers & Reference Material producers and is now signatory to APLAC MRA for both.

Benefits of accreditation

NABL is a Full member (ILAC MRA signatory) to ILAC [3] as well as APLAC Mutual Recognition Arrangements (MRA),[4] based on mutual evaluation and acceptance of other MRA Partner laboratory accreditation systems. Such international arrangements facilitate acceptance of test / calibration results between countries to which MRA partners represent.

This developing system of international mutual recognition agreements between accreditation bodies has enabled accredited laboratories to achieve a form of international recognition, and allowed test data accompanying exported goods to be readily accepted on overseas markets amongst the countries which have already qualified as significant to ILAC Arrangements. This effectively reduces costs for both the exporters and the importers, as it reduces or eliminates the need for products to be re-tested in another country.


What are the benefits of NABL Accredited Calibration Laboratory ?

NABL accreditation brings enhanced Competency in calibration, raises customer confidence in calibration certificate issued by the laboratory with universal acceptability in the open market which provides greater access for their products, in both domestic and international markets.

Benefits of NABL Accredited Calibration Laboratory Certificate

  • Potential increase in business due to enhanced customer confidence and satisfaction.
  • Savings in terms of time and money due to reduction or elimination of the need for retesting of products.
  • Users of accredited laboratories will enjoy greater access for their products, in both domestic and international markets, when tested by accredited laboratories.
