Certification Experts offers a pre-project: a Technical Advisory Service (TAS), prior to the compliance procedure. The TAS is based on technical documentation and an initial inspection of the equipment. The findings of the TAS will be provided in a findings letter by the NRTL (National Recognized Testing Laboratory). In collaboration with all applicable parties involved, the required modifications will be stipulated to ensure a successful compliance procedure.
Field Certification (FC) – also called Unit Verification, is an internationally recognized form of certification under the ISO conformity assessment system and is accepted by the accreditation of professionals.
An FC will be conducted for each individual product or batch on location, including a one-time test. Certification Experts can guide this process.
Limited Product Certification (LPC) is essentially a “batch certification,” designed to accommodate situations where a limited quantity of the product is manufactured, or a batch of the product is intended for distribution.
After verifying that all units in the batch are identical to the test sample and in compliance, they are labeled on location by a NRTL representative using serialised certification.
Certification Experts can guide this process.
