Baltimore, Maryland (PRWEB) March 14, 2013
MET Laboratories is pleased to announce that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with LCIE Bureau Veritas, in Paris, France that allows for the mutual recognition of reports issued by both parties.
This agreement will allow French manufacturers requiring safety certifications for North America to gain it locally through working with LCIE, the largest electrical testing laboratory in France. North American-based customers can now attain market access in Europe by working with MET to gain European certification marks.
Both MET Laboratories and LCIE are members of the IECEE CB Scheme, and will benefit from the mutual recognition of CB reports issued by either party. LCIE is a French National Certification Body participating in the CB Scheme. French manufacturers will gain access to North American product safety certification according to OSHA NRTL and Standards Council of Canada Certification Body regulations.
Partnering with MET Laboratories, a leader in electrical product safety for more than 50 years, will expand the scope of LCIE’s electrical testing and certification services. Key industry sectors benefiting from this partnership include IT, consumer electronics, medical and laboratory equipment.
