Korean lab accredited to perform AMCA testing



The Korea Machinery-Meter and Petrochemical Testing and Research Institute (MPI) laboratory in Pyeongtaek-City, South Korea, has been accredited by AMCA International to perform both air and sound tests in accordance with AMCA International's test standards 210 and 300 and other international standards. The agreement is part of AMCA International's continued efforts to expand its Certified Ratings Program (CRP) in Korea. MPI will act as AMCA International's authorized CRP agent for the Korean regions and in other areas of the Pacific Rim.


The laboratory was accredited on Aug. 26, 2009. AMCA Executive Director Barbara Morrison and MPI President and CEO Kim Yeon Kwong signed the licensing agreement. Also present were Mr. Lee, vice president of MPI, and Mark Stevens, AMCA deputy executive director.


The MPI testing laboratory is equipped with the latest state-of-the-art equipment to perform air and sound tests. It also can provide third-party verification for product testing in the HVAC industry; testing capacities will range from air volumes of 650 cmh to 140,000 cmh. Going forward, the facilities will be used to help verify the energy efficiency of ventilation and air conditioning equipment; promote green building; verify compliance with environmental sustainability standards; and ensure that environmental quality and comfort are not compromised.
