CMA is the abbreviation of "China Metrology Accreditation". Article 22 The metrological departments of the people's Republic of China shall provide qualified metrological data to the metrological departments of the people's Republic of China Therefore, all product quality supervision and inspection institutions and other laboratories that issue fair data to the society must obtain China Metrology Certification, namely CMA certification. So, what are the steps for a third-party testing agency to apply for CMA qualification
Method / step
The first step
More than 500000 registered capital is required for different regions;
After the industrial and commercial registration is completed, it is necessary to purchase equipment and recruit chemical analysis engineers. The instrument must be a chemical analysis instrument of national standard and CMC certified instrument. The basic instruments are: gas chromatograph, spectrophotometer, soap film flowmeter, analytical balance, atmospheric sampler, radon detector, drying oven, etc;
Personnel need at least one senior chemical analysis engineer and several chemical analysis engineer titles;
After at least three months of trial operation and the establishment of a complete laboratory management system, apply to Provincial Quality Supervision Bureau for metrological certification;
Provincial Quality Supervision Bureau Certification Department will inform you when to conduct on-site review;
On site review (this is the most critical). If there are few projects to apply for certification, generally two people will come. One team leader is responsible for the inspection of the quality system, and the other expert is responsible for the inspection of technical aspects.
The on-site review will generally issue some unqualified items, as long as it is not too many, generally no problem. First, there will be some problems, and the second is to reflect the level of experts. So there will be some unqualified items;
Rectification of non-conforming items shall be carried out for at least one month. One month later, the rectification shall be completed, and the relevant written certificate shall be submitted to the team leader. Step 9
