Carib Cement is proud to announce that its in-house laboratory is the first in Jamaica to be internationally accredited. The Company’s Laboratory Management System is now ISO/ IEC 17025:2005 accredited.
The ISO/IEC 17025 standard is a global ISO standard outlining the general requirements to ensure the competency of laboratories doing testing and calibration. The Carib Cement laboratory management system, therefore, had to demonstrate that it could successfully and consistently meet the international standard requirements. In its assessment for accreditation, the laboratory consistently generated credible test data for eight ASTM standard test methods on cement prior to its release to the market.
Accreditation was granted to Jamaica’s sole producer of Portland cement on December 10, by the Laboratory Accreditation Bureau (L-A-B) of Indiana, USA.
L-A-B is an internationally recognized accreditation body with full membership to the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC). Carib Cement has joined the ranks of over 300 laboratories worldwide which were accredited by
L-A-B, including countries such as USA, Brazil, Canada, China, Germany, India, Japan, Switzerland, Saudi Arabia and Mexico.
Carib Cement took the decision to have its laboratory internationally accredited as a part of its focus on continuous improvement in all aspects of its operations and its corporate social responsibility in ensuring a product in the marketplace of consistently high quality.
