ECAE is the acronym for “Ethiopian Conformity Assessment Enterprise”. In February 2011, ECAE was established as a federally owned Public Enterprise, governed by the Ministry of Science and Technology.
ECAE, is at present the major conformity assessment organization in the country providing testing laboratory, inspection, and certification services to the industry and to public .
ECAE Continued to strength it’s mechanical laboratory.
ECAE purchased a new machine called Spectromax at a high cost and gave training for the staff to further strength the mechanical laboratory.
The machine can identify the chemical composition of any metal at a percent level showing a result of one sample in a minute. Before the machine is purchased, the laboratory tests and reveals results using other parameters.
The significant of the machine is that as the country is in a great pace of construction, it can be taken as a means to ensure and use quality construction metal inputs.
