SGS is proud to announce that its Malaysian mineral and metal, and oil, gas and chemical labs have received the Institut Kimia Malaysia (IKM) Laboratory Excellence Award.

IKM Laboratory Excellence Award

This award recognizes labs that provide first class testing services, underpinned by the highest standards of analytical work.

The IKM Laboratory Excellence Award

The IKM Laboratory Excellence Award is based on two key criteria: quality and safety.

Labs must demonstrate that they operate a quality system that meets the requirements stipulated in MS ISO/IEC 17025. They must have an appropriate management structure in place for implementing this quality system and monitoring it on an ongoing basis. Samples must be adequately controlled at all times using the appropriate resources for the scope in question, while laboratories must also implement effective quality assurance/control programs to ensure the validity of their results.

The IKM Laboratory Excellence award also requires labs to operate with a safety first mindset at all times. This includes lab design, operational control over hazardous chemical and waste, safe staff behavior and use of equipment. Labs must also ensure ongoing compliance with local laws and regulations.

Ruby Mae Barnuevo, Business Manager at SGS Malaysia, commented, "We're thrilled that our mineral and metal, and oil, gas and chemical labs have received the IKM Laboratory Excellence Award. This illustrious award demonstrates our continued commitment to excellence and highlights the fantastic work that our teams are doing on a daily basis."
