How is NABL accreditation different from ISO 9000 certification…?
The ISO 9000 Certification focuses solely on Quality System Management, whereas NABL Accreditation provides formal recognition of the CABs’ technical competence, allowing customers to quickly find reliable testing (including medical), calibration, PTP, and RMP services to meet their needs and the Quality System. System certification is a lower-level activity, whereas accreditation is a higher-level activity. Laboratories can be audited and accredited to ensure that they comply with international management system standards like ISO 9000. The auditing of a company’s quality management system falls under this category.
