EMC Technologies has announced that its Melbourne labs have been accredited for a wide scope of safety and environmental testing.

Compliance with electrical safety standards and directives is a mandatory requirement worldwide. EMC’s comprehensive NATA accredited safety testing facility at its Sydney Branch (since 1996) and the A2LA accredited Melbourne facilities at Keilor Park provide a choice of NATA or A2LA accredited testing. Either endorsed report will have international recognition under the umbrella of the ILAC (International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation).

The new facility can test to most safety standards to AS/NZS and EN/IEC required for RCM (declared and non-declared articles) and CE LVD compliance. For RCM level 3 (high risk) devices, EMC can also provide the mandatory accredited safety test necessary for certification and ERAC registration, valid in Australia and New Zealand.

The company can provide safety testing services and NATA or A2LA test reports for the following common standards:

  • AS/NZS/EN/IEC 60335 series for appliances including EMC/EMF safety
  • AS/NZS/EN/IEC 61010 series for measurement, control and laboratory instruments
