SEOUL, South Korea, June 24, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Coway, the "Best Life Solution Company," announced today that its Seoul-based R&D Center, the Environmental Technology Research Institute, has been recognized for its technical expertise by earning the highest rating in the Water Supply for Drinking Water Proficiency Testing.

Proficiency Testing (PT) is an internationally recognized assessment program that evaluates a laboratory's analytical performance across a range of analytes at environmentally significant concentrations in unknown samples. Coway has participated in the Water Supply for Drinking Water PT Scheme provided by ERA, the global providers of Proficiency Testing (PT) products and Certified Reference Materials (CRMs) to thousands of laboratories around the world and across multiple industries.

While participating in the testing, Coway Environmental Technology Research Institute met all evaluation criteria across all categories to be named a certified Laboratory of Excellence.

Coway received the highest grade, 'Satisfactory,' in all 18 performance evaluation categories. Seventeen of these were related to drinking water, including testing for heavy metals, organic substances, and ion materials. The additional category was for mattress material emissions.

The evaluation marks the Coway Environmental Technology Research Institute's 17th consecutive year of being internationally recognized for meeting the requirements in the performance testing of its water quality analysis capabilities, setting an industry record.

Since becoming the industry's first drinking water quality inspection agency accredited by South Korea's Ministry of the Environment in 2008, the Coway Environmental Technology Research Institute's test and analysis capabilities have been annually verified by external certification bodies. The laboratory has been approved as a designated TÜV SÜD testing laboratory, TSP (Technical Service Provider) by WQA (Water Quality Association), and an international testing laboratory with accreditation from KOLAS (Korea Laboratory Accreditation Scheme).
