Nadcap (formerly NADCAP, the National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program) is a global cooperative accreditation program for aerospace, defense and related industries.
With companies like Boeing, Airbus, Bombardier and their suppliers expanding operations in India year after year, the scope for testing and validation in these areas is continuously increasing. To be a key player in materials testing in these areas, Nadcap accreditation of the test facilities is a necessary requirement. Nadcap certification demands attention to details, accurate documentation and reliable results.
According to the e-audit report of Performance and Review Institute (PRI), BiSS Labs is the only laboratory in India to have Nadcap accreditation for non metallic materials testing (NMMT). BiSS has sustained the accreditation continuously for three years now, and has been recently elevated to “Merit Status”. Nadcap accreditation of BiSS Labs for metals is underway.
BiSS Labs currently has more than 12 systems (ranging from 5 kN to 2000 kN) dedicated to testing of composites based on non-metallic materials. Apart from Aerospace, composite material characterization under static and dynamic loads is performed round the clock for industries in Energy, Healthcare and Automotive sectors.
