About the Conference

Chemical laboratories play a critical role in so many aspects of society and the economy, from the assurance of quality products, the safety of food products, quality exports and imports, forensics and crime, clean water and environment, and many others. Chemical laboratories also enable us to develop new competitive products. Good chemical laboratories are necessary for nation-building.

The Integrated Chemists of the Philippines (ICP), the Accredited Professional Organization of Chemists and Chemical Technicians, is proud to launch this initiative to establish a network of chemical laboratories in the Philippines through the National Conference on Chemical Laboratories (NCCL), to be held for the first time on 28-29 November 2017 at the Century Park Hotel in Manila. The conference will serve as a venue where all matters which affect chemical laboratories can be discussed, such as:

  • Policy
  • Legal matters: government regulations; Chemistry Profession Act of 2015
  • Best practices
  • Global competitiveness of chemical laboratories
  • Recent scientific developments and trends
  • Network activities and coordination

This event shall bring together practitioners working in accredited chemical laboratories to enhance the functions of laboratories and to promote collaboration, and address other mutual interests.

Be a part of this network. See you at the 1st NCCL!
