What is Product Safety Testing?
Safety testing is about more than just maintaining compliance and limiting your liability — it’s about delivering a superior product for your customers. Whether you manufacture goods for the consumer, military, aerospace or any other market, NTS can help with this essential stage of the quality assurance process. For more than half a century, we have been committed to delivering product testing services to some of the most demanding clients worldwide.
Helping You Meet Product Safety Standards
NTS has extensive experience in testing electrical products in accordance with various safety standards including IEC/UL/EN 60950-1 for Information Technology Equipment (ITE), 61010-1 for Laboratory and Test & Measurement equipment, 60335 for Household equipment, 60065 for Audio, Video and Similar Electronic Apparatus as well as IEC 60601-1-x for Medical Equipment.
One of our biggest strengths is our ability to work with clients from the start by identifying where they intend to market their products. Once NTS has identified what safety/certification marks our client needs, NTS will prepare a test plan to satisfy the respective standards and requirements. To summarize this, NTS will save clients time and money, but most importantly, headaches and stress.
