Laboratory accreditation is the third-party certification that CNAs has the ability to carry out specific testing and calibration for testing and calibration laboratories.
As CNAs has joined the Asia Pacific Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (APLAC) and the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC), the testing data of CNAs accredited laboratories are recognized by the member countries (regions) of the Asia Pacific Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (aplac-mra) and the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC-MRA).
According to Article 32 of the detailed rules for the implementation of the Metrology Law of the people's Republic of China, it is stipulated that "product quality testing institutions providing notarized data for the society must be certified by the metrological administrative department of the people's government at or above the provincial level." The above provisions indicate that: for the verification / testing laboratory without metrological certification, the verification / testing report issued by it will have no legal effect, and can not be used as the basis of legal arbitration and product / engineering acceptance, but can only be used as internal data. However, if a laboratory wants to enter the international market and contract the inspection business of import and export goods, the data and results to be issued are recognized in a wider range and level, and need to be recognized by the laboratory.
