Boxborough, MA (PRWEB) August 27, 2008
Intertek (LSE: ITRK), a global leader in testing, inspection and certification services, has announced the launch of a new online tool called "Intertek House". This interactive site is designed to demonstrate to both manufacturers and consumers the many products used in and around the home which can be tested and certified by Intertek.
Located at http://www.intertek-etlsemko.com/house, Intertek shows the wide scope of electrical/electronic products and construction products that are subjected to safety, performance and quality assurance testing. Safety standards protect the public against fire and shock hazards, while performance and quality testing ensures that only reliable and quality products make it to market. From the car in the garage to the baby monitor in the bedroom, Intertek tests the products people use every day.
"This is by no means the full scope of Intertek's testing capabilities," says Gregg Tiemann, Chief Executive, Intertek Commercial & Electrical Products. "But it is a fun and engaging way to learn more about testing and certification overall, and the rigorous processes that a product undergoes before it ever reaches the consumer's home."
Intertek's services bridge nearly every industry and product imaginable, from HVAC, cabling, medical products and home appliances, to smoke/CO detectors, mattresses, mobile phone applications and much more. The Company is accredited by certification bodies around the world to test and certify products, and is trusted by global industry leaders to expertly and efficiently help them obtain compliance for every market they wish to enter.
