NRTL: Your passport to markets in the USA and Canada
Both the US and Canadian governments have defined exact requirements which must be satisfied by products for use in commercial, industrial, or in public buildings. Electrical equipment and machines in particular are subject to testing, certification and special labeling.
Your access authorization
You, as manufacturer, consequently have to comply with stringent requirements. European tests based on EN or IEC standards on their own are not sufficient.
Compliance with national test standards, such as UL, CSA and ANSI standards is mandatory. TÜV SÜD offers flexible solutions for obtaining product approvals in the USA and Canada and thus helps you to enter these lucrative markets.
OSHA only recognizes products or equipment as safe which have been listed and labeled by a recognized NRTL (Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory). OSHA verifies product labeling, e.g. during workplace inspections.
TÜV SÜD is an OSHA recognized NRTL providing certification for the following products
In Canada, TÜV SÜD is SCC-accredited to test the safety of electrical equipment in line with Canadian requirements.
We ensure your market success!
The earlier we are involved in product design, the faster and more efficient the certification of your product. Weaknesses are often foreseeable before actual product testing, and can thus be eliminated at an early stage. NRTL certification of industrial products focuses on testing electrical and mechanical safety on the basis of UL, CSA and ANSI test standards.
