The Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (DHBVN) on Thursday claimed to have become the first power utility firm in the country to have a meter and current transformer & potential transformer (CT&PT) testing laboratory accredited by the National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL).

Mohammed Shayin, DHBVN managing director, said in a release that the lab in Gurgaon had obtained the NABL certificate for two years which is extendable after carrying necessary audits.

The facility is fully automated with a capacity of testing 20 electricity meters at a time. The tests are now acceptable worldwide as NABL is a member of international bodies like International Laboratories Accreditation Co-operation (ILAC) and Asia Pacific Accreditation Co-operation (APLAC).
