Accreditation of Measurement and Metrology Centre by National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL)

Ajay Kumar Garg Engineering College, in its endeavor to impart engineering education commensurate with the requirements of Industries, have established a world class Measurement & Metrology Centre in collaboration with Zeiss. It is equipped with 3D Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM), Surface Roughness Testing, Contour Measurement and 3D Scanning setup, along with the regular measuring instruments and accessories. The facility has now been accredited by National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL) as per ISO / IEC 17025:2017 standard, complying with “General Requirements for the Competence of Testing & Calibration Laboratories.”

National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL), aconstituent Board of Quality Council of India has been established with the objective of providing Government, Industry Associations and Industry in general with a scheme of Conformity Assessment Body’s accreditation which involves third-party assessment of the technical competence of testing including medical and calibration laboratories, proficiency testing providers and reference material producers. It is a full member (MRA signatory) to International Laboratory Accreditation Co-operation (ILAC) as well as Asia Pacific Laboratory Accreditation Co-operation (APLAC) since 2000 on the basis of peer evaluation by APLAC as per ISO/IEC 17011:2004.

The centre is now authorized to provide Internationally valid dimension testing / calibration results as per the scope approved by NABL. With this recognition, the measurement and metrology centre at AKGEC joins one of the very few elite laboratories setup by an Engineering Institute,to be accredited by NABL in the country. The centre now looks forward to offer the services in Dimension Metrology to the nearby Industries and Research Organizations.
