Intertek’s diverse range of inspection services can provide trusted support for your products, projects, and processes.

Inspections help minimize the risk of defective products by ensuring they meet both customer standards and industry and government regulations. This serves to protect your business interests; help manage your risk and ensure quality products are manufactured and delivered to their final destination at the specifications of the customer.

Independent third-party inspections help clients around the world protect their financial, branding, and legal interests throughout the entire supply chain - from raw materials and finished goods to plant facilities and assets.

Experienced inspectors help identify products which may contain non-standard or non-compliant components and materials. Building and Construction products and materials that we routinely test and inspect include:

Intertek Product Certification

Intertek product inspections are performed by an Intertek Field Representative to review the client’s quality control program, their ability to conduct the required production line tests and maintain adequate records/controls.

Follow‐up inspections of the listed product(s) are generally conducted to ensure:

  • Listed product(s) is still being manufactured in the same manner as originally tested and listed in the current product report.
  • The required production line tests are being performed.
  • The client is maintaining their internal quality control programs to such an extent that they are able to detect and correct products which do not conform to the Intertek Listing Report.
