Compliance testing and certification services for power utility cable manufacturers
We work with product manufacturers to test and certify power cable products for utility, engineering procurement and construction (EPC), renewable energy and construction use. We provide product manufacturers with safety certification and performance Verification services, including UL 1072, the Standard for Medium-Voltage Power Cables; IEC; AEIC; and ICEA for power cables. Additionally, we provide International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) type testing and qualification testing services to manufacturers requiring a type examination certificate for the markets that require these certificates.
