    Coatings Research Group, Incorporated is an international organization of paint manufacturers, staffed with degreed chemists, and recognized the world over for its high quality technical work and scientific reporting. The CRGI laboratory is ISO 17025 accredited by ANAB.

    Being an ISO-17025 certified laboratory means that CRGI is audited annually for all critical paint test methods. 

    This assures:

    • Consistent, industry-standard, statistically validated test methods are used
    • Properly run by certified and trained scientists & chemists

    CRGI designed the Green Wise paint standards and test methods with scientific input from member paint chemists. The result is the development of a truly green standard by which paints are accurately measured. All Green Wise testing is done independently by CRGI and member companies do not perform any testing.  The Green Wise program is available to members and non-members.
