ISO/IEC 17025 specifies the general requirements for the competence, impartiality and consistent operation of laboratories.
NABL is a Constituent Board of Quality Council of India. NABL involves in third-party assessment of the technical competence of testing including medical and calibration laboratories, proficiency testing providers and reference material producers.
How it works
ISO/IEC 17025 allows laboratories to implement a sound quality system and demonstrate that they are technically competent and able to produce valid and reliable results.
ISO/IEC 17025 also helps facilitate cooperation between laboratories and other bodies by generating wider acceptance of results between countries. Test reports and certificates can be accepted from one country to another without the need for further testing, which, in turn, improves international trade.
