NABL ACCREDITATION TO TEST FACILITIES

Obtaining      certification
from National Accreditation
Board for Testing & Calibration
Laboratories (NABL) for all
test facilities of MDD was
commenced in September
2015. In spite of an existing
framework of well established
management system of DRDL
certified to ISO 9001:2015,
accreditation of MDD test
facilities to NABL was indeed
a tedious task with its own
challenges.

As evident, activities
pertaining to NABL are
consistent and diligent.
Even miniscule aspects like
environmental  conditions
of testing, standardisation
procedures, personnel training
and safety apparatus demand
attention and meticulous
monitoring.
