The Sabo Research and Development Laboratory or what used to be called the Sabo Laboratory is a laboratory established to support research at the Sabo Research and Development Center. To find out the characteristic characteristics of the sampling results, the Sabo Research and Development Center researchers used a laboratory to conduct a series of tests. The process of implementing testing services at that time was only limited to serving the demands of researchers, not yet thought of good laboratory management. Over time, the Sabo Laboratory was required to become a certified laboratory, so that in 2005-2010 Sabo Laboratory personnel were included in the SDK-facilitated training (PKSK at that time).
The Sabo Laboratory Quality Management System Document was first compiled in 2005, but the document is still a translation of SNI on Laboratory requirements, so it is very difficult to understand and implement the laboratory. In 2009 the Sabo Laboratory Quality Management System Document was compiled which refers to SNI / ISO IEC 17025: 2008 concerning requirements for Testing / Calibration Laboratories. The document consists of Quality Guidelines (PM), Operational Procedures (PO), Work Instructions (IK) and Forms. After several changes, finally in 2010, the Quality Management System document was published for the first time. In 2011 the Sabo Laboratory proposed accreditation for 7 concrete parameters.
In 2012 the Sabo Laboratory officially received accreditation from KAN no LP-591-IDN with 7 concrete field parameters. In 2013 during Surveillance I, the Sabo Laboratory succeeded in maintaining its accreditation accompanied by an additional 4 parameters of concrete scope and 8 parameters of soil mechanics. At the time of Re-accreditation in 2016 the Sabo Laboratory succeeded in maintaining its accreditation accompanied by an additional 2 parameters Hydraulic scope. So that the total accredited parameters that can be served as many as 21 parameters.
