Intertek's ASTA Services team delivers leading services for the electrical industry. Our services include schemes truly recognized internationally such as plug and fuse approvals and low/medium/high voltage certification.
ASTA was founded in 1938 as the Association of Short-Circuit Authorities. ASTA certificates and endorsed reports are only available through testing at ‘recognized’ testing facilities that have been rigorously assessed by ASTA.
ASTA Certificates are the only certificates that are signed by an ASTA Observer who is technically responsible to ASTA for the performance and reporting of the tests and not to the testing station.
