TAMCO Switchgear Testing Laboratory Receives ISO 17025 Certification

TAMCO Switchgear Testing Laboratory has been accredited with ISO 17025, a globally recognized international standard for testing and calibration laboratories, from Standards Malaysia. This accreditation marks a pivotal milestone for TAMCO Switchgear as it further strengthens its product quality control in ensuring a safe and reliable power supply to support the NETR initiatives.

The ISO 17025 accreditation signifies that the TAMCO Switchgear Testing Laboratory, located in Bukit Raja, Selangor meets the highest standards for competence in the testing of medium-voltage switchgear which were previously conducted by foreign laboratories namely KEMA in the Netherlands, CESI in Italy, ASTA in Australia, and IPH in Germany. By implementing in-house testing in accordance with ISO 17025 accreditation, TAMCO Switchgear is able to reduce the lead time of product delivery to meet the demanding project requirements.

“We are proud to have received ISO 17025 accreditation as this accreditation is a testament to our commitment to quality and compliance. It allows us to serve our customers and the industry better, and achieve the global goals together, such as NETR,” said Dr. Ir. Segaran Narayanan, CEO of TAMCO Switchgear.

Malaysia’s National Energy Transition Roadmap (NETR) was introduced to ensure the nation remains relevant and competitive in a world where industrial and commercial bases are rapidly changing by the day. The NETR is a significant milestone for Malaysia and comprehensively charts our nation’s trajectory towards a brighter, cleaner, and more resilient future.
