A Stickland, Gill Research and Development, UK
Designing a product to be compliant with all the necessary safety requirements for an international market makes sense… Intertek built all of the requirements in to my design without adding any cost to the product…It was like having certification experts ‘on-staff’!
R Jones MD W+S Measuring Systems Group, UK
What would have taken months to complete at other certification / test facilities, Intertek accomplished in a matter of weeks. With their up to date knowledge of certification compliance requirements for Ex and CE approvals, the time to market for our instruments were cut dramatically.

…Many thanks for your help in achieving the tight time-scales involved required on this project…
B Thompson, Design Manager, Victor Limited, UK
…Friendly and efficient service - the company is most approachable and is open to questions the answers to which are obvious to those involved in this nature of work but a mystery to those not involved in the work. The approach is professional at all times…the company is sufficiently in the real world to understand the economics and benefits than can be obtained by combining testing for multiple approvals.

After contacting dozens of certification agencies, including some of the biggest and best-known in the world, it soon became clear that the expertise, readiness to help and professionalism of Intertek greatly surpassed those of the other companies…the project taken care of quickly and effectively. It was all done in just a few days. Excellent service!
