The chemical laboratory in TÜV SÜD’s textile testing facility in Tiruppur has qualified for ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accreditation by the National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL). ISO/IEC 17025:2005 specifies the general requirements for TÜV SÜD to undertake tests and sampling. TÜV SÜD is a German safety and quality expert.

The accreditation includes testing and calibration performed using standard methods, non-standard methods, and laboratory-developed methods.

The NABL accreditation enables the laboratory to provide improved customer satisfaction, faster turnaround for test results that subsequently reduce time to market. With a strong industry reputation for quality, TÜV SÜD's Tiruppur lab will offer a comprehensive range of services with expertise encompassing all textile and knitwear testing requirements.

TÜV SÜD recently enhanced its Tiruppur lab by adding extensive chemical testing capabilities to an existing world class physical and mechanical facility; thus, making it an all-inclusive testing solutions provider for international and domestic markets. The laboratory will also offer value added services like sampling pick-up, technical support and training support.

With this accreditation, TÜV SÜD is now approved to perform the tests for banned amines - chlorinated organic careers, phthalates - organotin compounds, formaldehyde - PVC, pH – odour, APEO's - nickel spot and nickel release, carcinogenic - Lead, Cadmium, dyes, disperse dyes - extractable heavy metals, chlorinated - total heavy metals, and phenols. Commenting on this recognition, Ezhilan Neelan, senior vice president, Product Services, TÜV SÜD South Asia said, "NABL accreditation is a benchmark which will provide much needed assurance for the tests carried under our chemical facility to our wide client base. Providing our expertise to the huge textile industry at Tiruppur, this accreditation comes as a testimony to our goal of enhancing our service offerings by understanding the global apparel trends and achieving dedicated customer service."

NABL is a Constituent Board of Quality Council of India. NABL has been established with the objective of providing government, industry associations and industry in general with a scheme of Conformity Assessment Body's accreditation which involves third-party assessment of the technical competence of testing including medical and calibration laboratories, proficiency testing providers and reference material producers.
