Global Testing and Consultancy for Rubber (G-TACR)

G-TACR which is an acronym for Global Testing and Consultancy for Rubber (Figure 1) is the newly formed one stop centre for rubber at the Malaysian Rubber Board (MRB) under the NKEA project EPP#3 with the aim to increase world market share of latex gloves to 65% (RM30 billion) by year 2020. Under this project, MRB is responsible for the sub project E1 which is to consolidate MRB testing facilities for latex and latex based products in order to improve delivery system for commercial latex testing services offered by the MRB.

G-TACR main activities together with operation flow of the centre are as shown in Figure 2 and comprises of fifteen (15) accredited laboratories as listed in Table 1 with various functions complementing each other and biological lab for some biological test. These laboratories provide specialised testing services and are accredited with the quality management system MS ISO/IEC 17025 under the Laboratory Accreditation Scheme of Malaysia (SAMM) and recognized by the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation Mutual Recognition Arrangement (ILAC-MRA).
