MicroChem gets international accreditation

MicroChem Laboratories, a provider of microbiological and chemical testing services, has received the International Laboratory Accreditation ISO/IEC 17025. The accreditation has been issued by the Sri Lanka Accreditation Board (SLAB), the national accreditation authority for Sri Lanka, the company said a press statement.

The ISO/IEC 17025 standard is specifically designed for quality and competence in testing laboratories. The accreditation assures the technical competence and reliability of reports issued by the laboratory.
The laboratory accreditation, according to the ISO 17025 standard, is also important to support industrial development and export promotion in Sri Lanka, said the statement.

“Importers in foreign countries need to have confidence that the products exported are safe for human use and complies with international standards. The local customers too, benefit with the quality and safe products they are served with,” it said.

MicroChem Laboratories Pvt Ltd was established in 2003 and in 2009 the company was accredited by SLAB for tests to check the microbiological quality of water.

While having the surveillance audit in 2010 to extend the accreditation of this area, the scope of accreditation was expanded for testing of microbiological quality of food and agricultural products. The accredited areas have a direct impact on the local industrialists, hotels and especially the exporters, to maintain high quality and conformity of products to the local and international markets.

In addition, MicroChem provides testing facilities for physical and chemical parameters of water, waste water, agricultural products, soil, fertilizers, industrial chemicals and consumer products. MicroChem Laboratories is also registered as a laboratory for environmental monitoring and analysis under the Central Environmental Authority.
