National Cooperation for Laboratory Accreditation (NACLA) awarded its Construction Materials Testing (CMET) AASHTO R18 recognition to CMEC, Inc.
CMEC is the first Accreditation body to receive this AASHTO R18 recognition from NACLA. CMEC is now recognized to accredit Construction Materials Testing labs to AASHTO R18 and ISO/IEC 17025.
NACLA’s CMET recognition satisfies the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) regulation, “Quality Assurance Procedures for Construction” 23 CFR 637 paragraphs 637.209 (a) (2), (3), and (4). This recognition shows CMEC’s commitment to providing quality lab accreditation services to construction materials testing laboratories.
For more than 30 years, CMEC, Inc. has offered construction materials testing laboratories the CMEC Accreditation Program. Our mission is to help improve the production, inspection and testing of various construction materials, and we’re dedicated to continuing to perfect our processes.

“The biggest benefit of using CMEC is that at the same time; while you’re being accredited/certified you may have professional help and advises in the whole process. After 12 years working with the people of CMEC, after being part of 34 Inspections in three different countries and 22 ACI classes/certifications, I think that there’s no doubt to place CMEC at the top of my list.”
“I have been associated with CMEC for decades, utilizing their accreditation services as well as their training and certification classes/examinations for commercial testing laboratory facilities/personnel of consulting engineering firms. I find their inspectors, instructors and management to be very knowledgeable and professional.”
“…I have found this company to be very professional, courteous, knowledgeable and well-informed in all the areas of inspection. CMEC’s inspectors and staff make the process of having your lab inspected with ease and less tension. I would highly recommend this company for all yours laboratory accreditations.”
CMEC has become the go-to Accreditation Body for construction materials testing, providing AASHTO R18 accreditation, ISO 17205 accreditation and other accreditations to laboratories that test materials such as aggregate, concrete, masonry, soils, asphalt binder, hot mix asphalt and other specialty materials.
