The Quality Assurance Department (QAD) of ITI is responsible for ensuring high quality of the internationally competitive technical services offered by the ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accredited laboratories of ITI. QAD also ensures the maintenance of ISO 9001:2008 standard requirements for all research and development activities which are carried out by all our research sections (herbal, food, materials and environmental technology) which are certified by the Sri Lanka Standards Institution (SLSI). Our information Services Centre (ISC) also serves the public as an ISO 9001 certified Science and Technology library.
QAD conducts training programmes to industry and others on Quality Management System (QMS) standards and chemical metrology related topics (measurement uncertainty, method validation, quality control etc). We have trained a large number of foreign and local clients over the past years and are an established credible training center in the South Asian region.
QAD provides consultancy to implement QMS in laboratories and industries and has served many government and private laboratories in the recent past (ISO 17025, ISO 15189, ISO 22000, ISO9001, GMP, HACCP and GLP).
QAD is also being upgraded as a reference laboratory and we engage in chemical metrology related services through organizing proficiency testing (PT) programmes, disseminating reference materials and providing training on related areas. Three regular PT programmes are conducted annually at present.
Through these activities QAD aims to enhance the productivity and competitiveness of local industries, assure equity in trade and improve public health, safety, and environmental of Sri Lankans.
