Bureau Veritas opens modern laboratory

Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services Lanka (Pvt) Ltd, a company involved in Testing, Inspection and Certification (TIC), opened a new laboratory in Katubedda recently.

Apparel and non apparel vendors, government and semi-government authorities and members of Chambers were present.

General Manager, Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services Lanka (Pvt) Ltd, Chanaki de Costa said they began their journey in Sri Lanka 19 years ago with six employees and shifted to a state-of-the-art facility in Katubedda and now employ 220 people.

She said the new facility will be a green certified laboratory.

“After 19 years we decided to diversify our activities to other sectors due to the strong positioning of Bureau Veritas which serve eight industries in 140 countries.

"We extended our activities to non apparel testing a few years ago,” de Costa said.

Bureau Veritas has registered with Central Environmental Authority (CEA) in Sri Lanka for testing of water and waste water which further expanded their ability to test for BOD, COD, pH, pesticides, heavy metals and TSS analysis.

Cosmetic products, food, paint and chemicals are tested as per the local and international regulations which help exporters and importers of these products.

The new facility which uses high tech equipment would serve as a hub point for all testing, inspection and audit services and endeavors to promote further development and expand the facility to other areas.

The company has obtained ISO 17025: 2005 (Certificate of Accreditation for Textile Testing – Mechanical and Chemical Testing) from the National Accreditation Board of Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL) and is one of the largest QA Services providers to the apparel industry in Sri Lanka.
