In its bid to indigenously develop petroleum certified reference materials branded as Bhartiya Niredeshak Dravyas, CSIR- National Physical Laboratory (NPL) has signed a pact with Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL).
It will not only ensure maintaining highest standard quality ecosystem for petroleum products used by all stakeholders but also save vital foreign exchange through import substitution for CRMs.
Certified Reference Materials (CRMs) play a pivotal role for the calibration of laboratory testing equipment for quality assurance. Currently, the traceability of these CRMs is mostly achieved through foreign national measurement institutes (NMIs).
HPCL is a pioneer in producing CRMs in India in petroleum sector under Make in India initiative. CSIR- NPL and HPCL have now joined hands to be part of the national initiative for developing BNDs used in petroleum sector.
