NTS is now a CBTL for Medical EMC Testing!

Medical Device TestingNTS Longmont is one of the few CB Testing Laboratories (CBTL) for electromatgnetic compatibility in the US. NTS Longmont has long been a leader in EMC testing for medical products to the CE, FDA and JFDA specifications. The CBTL approval enables NTS to provide CB Scheme EMC testing for medical products. The scope of approval includes the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th editions of IEC 60601-1-2.

The CB Scheme is an internationally accepted approach to compliance for electrical and electronic equipment.  It is operated by the IEC System for Conformity Testing and Certification of Electrotechnical Equipment and Components (IECEE).  While it is well-established for product safety, the EMC part of the CB Scheme is only recently gaining traction, particularly for medical equipment.  The concept is that a product can be tested once, and the CB reports (one for EMC and one for product safety) will allow sale of the product into any CB member country, provided all the national deviations are observed.

NTS’ Silicon Valley laboratory also holds CBTL status for ITE and Laboratory, Measurement, and Control Equipment applicable to IEC 60950 and IEC 61010 respectively.
