About Us

EDRC is an Emerging Trusted Resource Center with pounding Experience for Various facilities namely as “engineering diagnostic & research center” nicely abbreviated as edrc.  The venture is established to provide quality testing service.

EDRC is ISO/IEC 17025:2017 Certified Company, this International Standard specifies and ensure the General Requirements for the Competence of Testing and Calibration Laboratories and the same International Standard is adopted by NABL for Accreditation, along with ISO/IEC 17025:2017 Certification, EDRC is also in process of acquiring the Accreditation in ISO/IEC 17025:2017 from NABL within couple of months.

EDRC is ISO 9001:2015 Certified Company also, to ensure the Quality of Process, Services & Customer Satisfaction all the time.

In order to widen up the Capability, Capacity & Scope of Services, EDRC has made Technological tie-ups and making EDRC as a large Resource Center by Associating with ‘Deep Testing Laboratories, Faridabad’, ‘OCE Projects Private Limited, Navi Mumbai’ and  ‘Buildcon Material Testing & Services Private Limited, Pune’, hence EDRC takes up Tests to be Carried out under the Scope of NABL Accreditation, if at all required as per contractual requirements through OCE Projects Private Limited which is widely Experienced in all kind of Geological / Sub-surface Exploration and worked almost all over India, maintaining an NABL Accredited [in accordance with ISO/IEC-17025-2005] Material Testing Laboratory at  63, 64, 77, 78, GAUTAM COMPLEX, PLOT NO-17, SECTOR- 11, CBD – BELAPUR, NAVI MUMBAI – 400614 & BMTSPL [an NABL Accredited & ISO 9001 Certified Laboratory at Pune], BMTPL- Buildcon Material Testing & Services Private Limited, Pune’ & Deep Testing Laboratories, (A Division of Deep Heat Treatment Centre), Plot No. 338, Sector-58, Faridabad- 121004 (Haryana).
