Major accreditation for Techenomics Mongolia lab

iso-CertificateTechenomics Mongolia has gained ISO 17025 accreditation for its oil analysis laboratory in Ulaanbaatar. It is the first time a laboratory in Mongolia has achieved this standard which ensures that Techenomics’ clients always receive accurate, state-of-the-art analysis of their oil samples.

This analysis by Techenomics’ expert staff along with the trending data compiled from regular analysis enables clients to identify issues with machinery and equipment before they occur, thus reducing downtime, increasing productivity and saving money.

The relatively new Techenomics Mongolia laboratory contains innovative, state-of-the-art equipment which is thoroughly checked and maintained every six months by the suppliers. The laboratory, which serves Mongolia’s mining, transport and manufacturing industries, is staffed by chemists who are specially trained to operate the equipment, analyse the results using Blue Oceans software and compile the data needed to provide expert, independent analysis trends.

Technomics International’s CEO Chris Adsett says that attaining ISO 17025 accreditation reflected the hard work and commitment of all staff at Techenomics Mongolia. “It has been a challenging but rewarding journey for the staff and paves the way for further growth of the business in Mongolia.

“As an independent operator we take great pride at Techenomics in working with Mongolian and international accreditation agencies to ensure our accuracy and attention to detail. The international ISO cross checking program is also vital in maintaining our quality standards at all of our operations,” he says.


Techenomics Mongolia Country Manager Sugarkhorloo E (Sugraa) says many independent audits were performed by the ISO team to validate compliance with the standard. This process was also supported by the regular laboratory proficiency tests undertaken by Techenomics Mongolia, which involve inter-lab checks on results and these are carried out according to American Standards.


Sugraa says ISO 17025 specifies the general requirements for the competence to carry out tests and/or calibrations, including sampling. “It covers testing and calibration performed using standard methods, non-standard methods, and laboratory-developed methods. It is applicable to all organizations performing tests and/or calibrations.

“ISO 17025 is applicable to all laboratories regardless of the number of personnel or the extent of the scope of testing and/or calibration activities. It is for use by laboratories in developing their management system for quality, administrative and technical operations.

“In essence it ensures the lab operates accurately and with repeatability, which is critical when numerous oil samples are taken from the same piece of equipment or plant over the life of the asset,” Sugraa adds.
