Spectro Analytical Labs Ltd. is accredited by ‘NABL’ (National Accreditation Board for Testing & Calibration Laboratories), which is an autonomous body under the aegis of Department of Science & Technology, Government of India. NABL Accreditation is a formal recognition of the Technical Competence of a Testing and Calibration Laboratory for a specific task following ISO/IEC – 17025:2005 Standard. Spectro has been accredited by NABL for its wide range/scope of Testing & Calibration activities. Accreditation is a vital step towards removing ‘Technical Barriers to Trade’, and also instills faith and reliability amongst customers/clients in the Test/Calibration Reports. NABL’s establishment fulfills the objective of providing Government, Industry Associations and any independent testing laboratory in general, with a scheme for Third-Party Assessment of the Quality and Technical Competence of Testing and Calibration Laboratories. Government of India has authorized NABL as the only Accreditation body for Testing and Calibration laboratories. The ‘Test Certificates’ generated by ‘Spectro’ are accepted in 45 countries across the world due to NABL having achieved the status of APLAC (Asia Pacific Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation), MRA (Mutual Recognition Arrangement) partner, and signatory to ILAC (International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation) Arrangement based on peer evaluation by a multi-disciplinary team from APLAC.
Besides being accredited for ‘Competence in Testing & Calibration activities’, Spectro also has the Accreditation ISO – 14001:2004. This is an internationally accepted Standard that sets out a framework of essential elements for putting and implementing an effective Environmental Management System (EMS) in place. This Standard guides an organization to manage the Environmental aspects of business activities more effectively, while taking into account Environmental protection, pollution prevention and socio-economic needs. It also assists an organization to ensure compliance with Environmental Legislations and also demonstrate Environmental commitment to stakeholders. Spectro is also certified for having and implementing a Quality Management System (ISO – 9001:2008), by ‘Kvalitet Veritas Quality Assurance’ for its complete range of test activities.
Since Spectro has always believed in & maintained the importance of continual upgradation, not only in terms of its Technical Expertise but also in terms of improving and enhancing trust amongst its current & future employees, it has taken the lead among contemporary laboratories, especially in India, and set a remarkable example in ensuring Safety & a perfectly congenial work-place environment for its employees by acquiring the OHSAS – 18001:2007 Certification. This is an internationally accepted Management System Standard which makes it incumbent upon the Certified organizations to implement measures in their activities and processes, so as to reduce significantly or eliminate Occupational Health & Safety risks (OH&S) & Hazards to its employees. Spectro Analytical Labs Ltd. has voluntarily taken this step (since OHSAS – 18001:2007 is not a Regulatory Standard) in order to make use of the long-term advantages inherent in this Standard, which are, more often than not, neglected in pursuit of short-term gains. The advantages stem from the fact that proper implementation of OH&S Management System will result in substantial decrease in accidents at work places, which will significantly reduce production breakdowns, insurance related expenditures and, most importantly, instill faith & confidence in the overall Management System of an organization amongst its employees & customers. All these advantageous & favorable points about this Standard will definitely help in ensuring sustainability in all of the business endeavors of Spectro.
