Unique to the usual range of services provided by other test houses, Cranage offer compliance reviews, technical file documentation and guidance on regulatory affairs to assist companies to market their electrical and electronic products throughout Europe and N. America.
In addition to having extensive facilities for handling large or heavy items of equipment, if your products cannot be transported to test houses we will test them on your premises.
As well as providing a hands-on accredited testing service, our unrivalled range of services as CE Marking Consultants includes technical problem solving and advice relating to regulatory approvals to aid technical professionals.
As CE Marking Consultants we can identify if a product is in line with all New Approach Directives or carry out a gap analysis on which to base a plan for achieving compliance. The New Approach Directives relate to health, safety, the environment and consumer protection. Our ‘CETICK’ compliance advisory service helps in documenting a complete technical check on any product within our testing scope that is offered for sale.
The Low Voltage Directive 2006/95/EC is applicable to all electrical and electronic equipment which use voltages within the ranges of 50V to 1000V AC or 75V to 1500V DC.
Our unrivalled experience in providing product testing services has led to Cranage being appointed, by the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, as a Notified Body for electrical equipment safety under the Low Voltage Directive (LVD).
We are the preferred single source for EMC and LVD testing in the UK. Our EMC Testing Services also extend to other parts of Europe, Japan, Australia and N. America. Our range of EMC Testing Services is extensive and covers all product testing requirements, including:-
