ISO/IEC 17025:2017 (NABL) Certification for Hazardous & Restricted Chemicals

Hazardous & Restricted Chemicals

There are plenty of hazardous chemicals that are used in manufacturing a variety of products all over the world. If these hazardous chemicals are not handled properly and carefully, they might cause great danger to the users and the workers involved in the manufacturing of such products. Many serious health problems including skin irritation, choking and even cancer can be caused due to the use of such hazardous and restricted chemicals. As a result of which the regulating authorities in many countries have restricted the use of such chemicals in manufacturing of the products. In addition to that, the countries have also restricted the import of products and goods that contain the hazardous chemicals. Mainly electrical and electronic goods are the ones that use the hazardous chemicals. In addition to electrical goods, there are some plastic goods such as toys also may contain these chemicals which pose a big threat for the health of the users.

The hazardous chemicals that are restricted include lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (CrVI), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE), and four different phthalates (DEHP, BBP, BBP, DIBP). When a product is imported in a country, it is tested for restricted substances with the help of ROHS analysers and XRF analysers.

Due to these restrictions, the manufacturers of the electrical and electronic goods need to be tested thoroughly for the presence of such chemicals. In addition to that, handling and storage of such chemicals is also a great risk hence it must be done safely also. If the manufacturers fail to test the hazardous chemicals properly and the chemicals are found in the products during testing, then the manufacturers can not only be fined heftily, they can also be banned from exporting the goods to the countries where the restrictions are imposed. This is why, the manufacturers need to test the products rigorously and also it should be kept in mind that the laboratory that is conducting the testing of the products must follow all the procedures and guidelines that are necessary for efficient and accurate testing. 

There are guidelines that are prescribed by NABL that must be followed by the labs to conduct accurate testing. In addition to that, the international standard organization ISO also has released a standard that is meant for laboratories only. When the testing for restricted and hazardous chemical, then the laboratory in which the testing is being done, must have ISO 17025: 2017 certification. This will ensure that the lab is following all the good laboratory practices and hence there are no chances for any errors. Additionally, the NABL accreditation should also be possessed by the lab as only the test reports from lab with NABL accreditation are accepted internationally.
