Introduction

Since we started calibration operation in 1981, we have been providing our advanced facility and expertise to support research and production of our customers. As a national calibration agency, we maintain and distribute best measurement standards, while doing our best to incorporate the needs of customers. We will continue to contribute to the nation’s industrial development with better services.

Unsurpassed Expertise

Our highly experienced calibration experts provide top-quality calibration support using the most advanced calibration equipment.

Best-in-class Calibration System

We provide complete calibration support with a state-of-the-art calibration laboratory in compliance with environmental standards and in-house calibration management program.

Internationally Recognized Calibration Agency

KATS Accreditation/Internationally-recognized Calibration Services Provider

In August 2001, the Korean Agency for Technology & Standards (KATS) granted us KC01-048 certification for 110 items in seven calibration categories (Length, Angle, Surface Roughness, Pressure, Torque, Resistance and Temperature) under the Standards Korea Laboratory Accreditation Scheme (KOLAS). As a result, we have been able to provide calibration services that are recognized internationally. Additional accreditations (18 items in 4 categories) have subsequently been granted, enabling us to offer our customers ever-greater convenience. Currently, our calibration service covers nine items in two categories (Length and Related Quantities) according to the new calibration classification scheme established under the amended law.

KOLAS ( Korea Laboratory Accreditation Scheme)

The Korea Laboratory Accreditation Scheme (KOLAS) is the governmental accreditation body established in 1992 in accordance with the Law on Administrative Organizations and Institutions and Article 18 of the Organizational Decree of associated agencies. KOLAS is part of the Korea Agency for Technology and Standards (KATS) and is tasked with establishing a system of national standards; operating a system of industrial standardization, establishing criteria for determining product safety, quality and measurement; studying, researching, developing and supporting industrial technologies and engineering methods; operating a system for accrediting calibration and testing laboratories; and working with other countries and international institutions with regard to standardization. The Administrator of KATS also represents KOLAS externally.

In addition, KOLAS, in accordance with the National Standard Basic Act and ISO/IED Guide No. 58, certifies testing and calibration laboratories, inspection bodies and bodies related to standard quality production.
Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction calibration laboratory was accredited by KOLAS on August 16, 2001 for 110 items in seven categories and then re-accredited in April 2013 for seven items in two categories. We also received KOLAS accreditation in September 2002 for 10 categories in 2 domains and have since worked as an internationally accredited calibration and testing laboratory
