ilac mra dakksThe National Metrology Laboratory of the Philippines (NML) has been granted re-accreditation for another five (5) years until year 2020 by the Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle (DAkkS), the national accreditation body of the Federal Republic of Germany to perform calibrations in the field of mass, temperature, pressure and electricity in accordance with the standard ISO/IEC 17025:2005.

The National Metrology Laboratory of the Philippines (NML) has been granted re-accreditation for another five (5) years until year 2020 by the Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle (DAkkS), the national accreditation body of the Federal Republic of Germany to perform calibrations in the field of mass, temperature, pressure and electricity in accordance with the standard ISO/IEC 17025:2005.

The NML is the first and the only laboratory in the Philippines accredited by DAkkS to competently carry out calibrations of mechanical, electrical and thermodynamic quantities since 2010.

New this year are the calibrations of non-automatic electronic weighing instruments, pressure measuring equipment for absolute pressure and time base of frequency counters and generators.

The globally recognized measurement services of NML provide the gateway for the international traceability of measurements in the Philippines, enabling the local industries, private and government calibration laboratories, testing laboratories among others to avail of the services at a lower cost than if they seek such overseas.

The mutual recognition of DAkkS in the European Cooperation for Accreditation and the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation, ILAC ensures the acceptance of NML’s calibration certificates in all member economies worldwide.

A database of all accredited bodies is provided by DAkkS on its website www.dakks.de

The accreditation activity was carried out within the framework of the bilateral project “Strengthening of the National Quality Infrastructure in the Philippines” with the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development.
