Electrical Safety Testing

electrical engineer testing a device for safety

Compliance with electrical safety is a prerequisite for the approval of technology products and an integral part of regulatory testing and related market approvals.

In principle, different certification regimes need to be mentioned in the field of electrical safety. While the NRTL approval covers US and Canadian regulatory testing, the so-called CB Scheme is an international system for the mutual recognition of test reports and certificates that deal with the safety of electrical and electronic components, equipment and products. Currently about 50 countries participate in this program.


Our Services

The European part for electrical safety is defined by the associated EN/IEC standards. We are accredited to carry out regulatory testing of electrical safety and thus to accompany our customers on the way to market approval:

  • EN/IEC 60950-1 for Information Technology equipment
  • EN/IEC 62368-1 for Audio/video, information and communication technology equipment
  • EN 61010-1 Safety requirements for electrical equipment for measurement, control and laboratory use – Part 1: General requirements
  • AS/NZ 62368.1:2018 and AS/NZ 60950-1:2011 for products such as audio/video equipment and IT and communications technology used in Australia and New Zealand

These include the following tests:

  • Measurement of protective conductor resistance
  • Measurement of the leakage current and the touch current
  • High-voltage tests
  • Temperature tests
  • Power Measurements for mechanical strength
  • Check of the operating instructions
  • Check of the the label information

We also offer product testing for electrical safety for non-European countries in collaboration with our partner laboratories to help our customers quickly complete regulatory electrical safety testing as part of regulatory approval.
