Originally the Lab was established in 1995. It was the first laboratory in United Arab Emirates which achieved ISO 9002 certification in March 1996 after preparation of a comprehensive Quality Manual and establishing a proper quality system. This certification was a reflectance of leadership’s desire for recognized quality.
To demonstrate the ability of producing accurate result, to gain the confidence of end users and various governmental bodies, to achieve the set goals and targets, the first step for a lab is to get internationally recognized. For this purpose in 2003 entire quality manual was re-written in accordance with the requirements of latest international standard for testing laboratories ISO/IEC 17025, whole quality system was re-structured to meet with the requirements of the standards and then accreditation to ISO 17025 was achieved successfully.
