National Analysis Center for Iron & Steel ��NACIS��is analytical organization in third party which provides public services. It is one of the 13 national comprehensive analysis centers which approved by The Ministry of ScienceandTechnology of PRC in 1984 year. NACIS located in Central Iron & Steel Research Institute and is same organization as the Analysis and Testing Institute. NACIS includes chemistry Lab. physics Lab., mechanicsLab.,Nondestructive testing Lab , metrological center etc. NACIS has four functions, which are routine testing center, arbitration center, training center, and testing technique research respectively. NACIS has always been implementing the quality guidelines of science, equity, accuracy and high efficiency.
NACIS has developed the chemical analysis, physical testing, mechanics testing, nondestructive testing, metrological verification, comprehensive quality evaluation of material, development of certified reference material, analysistechnicaltraining,consultation of Lab. Design, scientific research, establishing and improving of standard, compiling of journal ��Metallurgical Analysis�� and so on. NACIS mainly goes in for the routine analysis, failure detection of material, defects analysis technique, special material safe evaluation, appraisal of material and arbitrative analysis.
NACIS has obtained the metrological certification by the China State Bureau of Quality Supervision Inspection and Quarantine, and get accredited to ISO/IEC 17025 by China National Accreditation Service for Conformity Assessment, has approved NADCAP as material testing laboratory by PRI, has certificated of approval supplier for chemical analysis by Rolls-Royce plc.
