What is KOLAS?
Korea Laboratory Accreditation Scheme

KOLAS (Korea Laboratory Accreditation Scheme) is a system which evaluates the quality system and technical capabilities of testing and inspection laboratories according to internationally accredited evaluation standards (ISO17025 and ISO17020) in order to approve them with KOLAS accredited testing and inspection laboratories, which is an accreditation organization whose authority is nationally recognized.
