Product Field Evaluation and Certification
|Field Evaluation VS. Field Certification
This is a practical and acceptable alternative to traditional product certification. Our service provides you with on-the-spot testing, evaluation and labeling of your products. The testing and evaluation is non-destructive, and is based on published requirements accepted by the Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ).
Complying products will be immediately labeled with a distinctive, serialized label per the AHJ requirements. For the U.S., the technical requirements are described in the National Electric Code (NEC) and other applicable requirements specified by the AHJ.
In Canada, the technical requirements are described in the Canadian Electrical Code, CSA Model Code SPE-1000 and for medical/lab/x-ray equipment, the applicable parts of the relevant CSA standards.
