ABA Lab Certification Program

The objective of (ABA LCP) is to provide a mechanism for formally recognizing the competency of a testing laboratory to perform specific tests on construction materials


Around the world, certification has become a definitive requirement for laboratories associated with product testing, public health, medicine, environmental assessments, and construction projects.
Certification is necessary in order to ensure that testing is carried out in accordance with the recognized standards. Afghanistan construction sector must own official laboratory certification requirements for material testing laboratories. Even without regulatory and international trade pressures, laboratories should continually seek to become certified in order to demonstrate, in a definitive way, their technical competence.

Afghanistan Builders Association hit a benchmark with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as the authority to certify material testing laboratories passed from USACE to ABA in Kabul, Oct. 27. 2014. By transiting this authority it helped Afghanistan gain self-sufficiency, and this transition gave ABA a lot of momentum to continue rebuilding Afghanistan. Afghanistan Builders Association is committed to enhance the quality of construction material testing through this important program.
