NABL being the National Accreditation Body for Testing and Calibration Laboratories, has the responsibility for the sustainment of the quality throughout the nation. To meet the ongoing requirements in terms of exponentially growing laboratories etc. and the specialized scopes, NABL has been regularly conducting training/ awareness programs throughout the nation. In this regard, NABL has conducted four National Laboratory Conclaves in various regions of the country. For the benefits of our laboratories, we have also launched two new programs viz. Accreditation of Proficiency Testing Providers (PTP) and Accreditation of Reference Material Producers (RMP).
At the international scenario, we extend cooperation to our neighbours in providing the internationally recognised accreditation services. NABL has also signed few MoUs with various economies on sharing of information and facilitating services.
Moving a step ahead in partnership with Consortium of Accredited Healthcare Organisations (CAHO), we have assigned CAHO to conduct a survey among accredited laboratories to identify the impact of accreditation in the country.
On the launch of first edition of newsletter, I wish CAHO a great success, in coming future.
