About QCI

QCI was established as the National body for Accreditation on recommendations of Expert Mission of EU after consultations in Inter-ministerial task force, Committee of Secretaries and Group of Ministers in 1996. The Council came into existence in 1947 through a cabinet decision. It was created as an autonomous non-profit organization through seed associations, i.e. ASSOCHAM, CII and FICCI, to establish & operate National Accreditation structure. Accreditation facilitates trade, by way of establishing equivalence & global acceptance of certification, inspection and Testing being undertaken by various conformity assessment bodies, in the areas of Quality, Environment, Food Safety etc. This is accomplished by two of the board of QCI i.e. National Accreditation Board for Certification Bodies (NABL) for certification/inspection bodies and testing/calibration laboratories respectively.

As the scope of accreditation grew beyond the traditional boundaries of conformity assessment – into fields such as healthcare & education, QCI responded to this need by launching accreditation in these by areas by establishing the National Accreditation Board for Hospital & Healthcare Providers (NABH) and National Accreditation Board for Education and training (NABET). Like accreditation boards on conformity assessment, the boards for healthcare & education, have international linkages for global acceptance.
