MOCON certified Mumbai testing lab earns independent accreditation


MOCON, Inc.’s testing lab partner in Mumbai, Hemetek Techno Instruments, has been accredited by India’s National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL) under the ISO/IEC 17025:2005 standard for oxygen and water vapor permeation testing of plastic barrier materials.

The Government of India has authorized NABL as the accreditation body for testing and calibration laboratories.
The organisation operates as an autonomous body under the government’s Ministry of Science and Technology.
The rigorous accreditation process takes a minimum of three years to complete.

The standard specifies the general requirements to competently carry out tests and/or calibrations, including sampling. It covers testing and calibration performed using standard methods, non-standard methods and laboratory-developed methods.

“It is a significant achievement for a private laboratory to receive this accreditation. Typically, the accreditation process is not economically viable for a non-government owned facility due to the significant investment in technical staff, instruments and the process,” explains Viraj Devasthale, Director, Hemetek.
