The Central Quality Control Laboratory functioning under the Processing and Product Development (P&PD) Department of the Rubber Board has got accreditation for chemical and mechanical testing from the National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL).

NABL is an autonomous body functioning under the Science and Technology Department of Central Government to provide government, industry associations and industry in general with a scheme for third party assessment of the quality and technical competence of laboratories. NABL accreditation is awarded to the laboratories that are performing tests and calibrations in accordance with ISO/IEC 17025:2005. The certificate of accreditation was handed over to Sri. N. Rajagopal (Director, P&PD) by Dr. A. Jayathilak, Chairman, Rubber Board.

The central quality control laboratory established in 1980 has been undertaking various tests for raw rubber, chemicals, fertilizers and water. This facility is beneficial to growers, processors, industries and general public at nominal fees. The laboratory is also ensuring the quality of processed rubber in the country and that of the imported natural rubber. This laboratory joins with Bureau of Indian Standards (ISI) for implementation and monitoring of the ISI marking for the processed rubber in the country.

The central quality control laboratory is the second laboratory of the Rubber Board which has got NABL accreditation. The Central Wood Testing Laboratory functioning under the same Department of the Board also was awarded NABL accreditation.
