SKM testing lab gets ISO certification

DUBAI, January 24, 2017

SKM Air Conditioning, a leading manufacturer of heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) equipment in the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region, said it has received an ISO 17025 accreditation certificate from Dubai Accreditation Centre for its hitech testing lab.

It is the only lab in the GCC to have received this accreditation in this capacity range. With this affiliation, the company will now be able to conduct superior in-house testing, saving it valuable time and speeding up the process of product certification.

Ammar Abdul Lateef, the QHSE and lab director, said: "The certification will boost SKM sales as we will now have our own laboratory for products. This association is in line with our vision of having a state-of-the-art independent testing laboratory."

"Our work has ensured our credibility of service and with this certification; we are setting an example in the HVAC manufacturing industry," he noted.

According to him, SKM has expanded its testing capabilities by building new testing labs.

“Such accreditations will create more business opportunities for us across the GCC, particularly in the UAE and help us in our on-going journey to improve our service delivery in the region.” noted Abdul Lateef.
The assessment was done on technical competence and SKM received Grade B category as per the newly-developed quality management system by DAC. SKM testing lab has also been AHRI certified previously.

Since its inception in 1974, the company has demonstrated substantial growth to become one of the leading manufacturers of HVAC equipment. It offers quality products certified by globally-recognised bodies like Eurovent, AHRI, TÜV, UL and ADQ.-TradeArabia News Service
