Environmental Training & Awareness

The laboratory conducts regular training programs for state and private sector organizations such as universities, industries, etc. on the environmental quality monitoring, assessment and management.

Our commitment towards the Quality Assurance

The laboratory regularly participates in inter-laboratory competency programs conducted by leading laboratories of the country for the continual enhancement of analytical capacities. We are currently exercising the quality assurance practices and seeking the laboratory accreditation certification based on ISO 17025:2005.
