Expands Global Lighting Capabilities with New Testing Laboratory Status for LED Lamps for Brazilian market
Accreditation for Compliance with Directive 389/2014 Broadens Scope in Hong Kong
Intertek Hong Kong, the leading LED Technology Centre and total solutions provider to industries worldwide, recently expanded capabilities to enhance its industry-leading breadth of services and response time for lighting manufacturers with a new accreditation in Hong Kong.
Intertek Hong Kong is accredited as an approved testing laboratory for LED lamps with integrated control device to the base, while in July 2015, Intertek’s São Paulo facility was accredited by the National Institute of Metrology, Quality, and Technology (INMETRO) as a certification body (CB) for the same LED product category. This facility recognition, along with Brazilian capabilities, strengthens the capacity of Intertek Hong Kong conducting lighting testing and certification.
With these accreditations, customers will now experience faster timeframes when developing or launching lighting products for the Brazilian marketplace.
Intertek’s industry-leading facilities and breadth of services provide a single source for global quality assurance
Over the past five years there has been strong demand for solid state lighting in South America and Intertek Hong Kong continues to expand our facilities to support these growing demands. Brazilian lighting manufacturers and those considering export to the Brazil should conduct market-specific product testing in compliance with INMETRO Directive 389/2014. This directive established new mandatory quality technical requirements for LED lamps with an integrated control device, with a focus on safety, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), energy efficiency and chemicals.
Given Intertek Hong Kong’s wide range of lighting capabilities, testing for the Brazilian marketplace can be done concurrently with testing to the safety, performance, energy efficiency or chemical requirements of other markets.
