NiNAS is proud to announce the issuance of its second accreditation to the newly published ISO/IEC 17025:2017 standard. The new standard was published in November, 2017 to replace the 2005 version, and NiNAS has developed a transition plan in line with the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) mandated 3-year transition period.

This milestone in NiNAS accreditation activities was achieved by Engineering Automation Technology Limited Q&I Laboratory, Port Harcourt after the Quality Inspection Centre, Zinder Refinery Company Limited (also known as SORAZ), Zinder, Republic of Niger.

In line with the transition plan for ISO/IEC 17025:2017, NiNAS has stopped receiving applications for accreditation to ISO/IEC 17025:2005.
