New BIS recognised testing lab in India
After receiving recognition from the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS), we have now officially opened our new, state-of-the-art testing laboratory in Faridabad, India.
The opening of Nemko India (Test Lab) Pvt Ltd represents an important step for Nemko into one of the world’s fastest growing markets, where there is a steadily increasing focus on providing safe and quality-assured products to consumers.
The lab in India was established to provide Nemko’s customers with testing facilities according to Indian and international standards. Satish Kumar Sankhyan, Managing Director of Nemko India, says it supports the overall direction India is taking toward higher standards of regulation. “India sees a shift in regulatory and product competence, and our new lab is part of this trend,” he says.
Compulsory Registration Scheme
Since 2013, 44 products have been included in the Compulsory Registration Scheme, which requires that manufacturers register their products with the Bureau of Indian Standards by submitting product documentation, including a test report from a BIS recognised lab before they can sell their product in India. The number of product groups included in the scheme is expected to reach up to 135 within the next few years.
“We want to assure that our customers receive timely and high-quality test reports in a complex market,” says Svein Ola Ulven, CEO of Nemko Group.
The Nemko India lab is located two kilometres from the capital Delhi. It is set up to meet current demand and is positioned to grow substantially over the next few years, with competitive pricing, quality services and fast turnaround. The facilities cover an area of 12000 sqft. The management team has extensive international experience and the lab is equipped with the latest technology for performing safety testing of electrical and electronics products as per the Compulsory Registration Scheme. The facility is also accredited by National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL).
