Standards and regulations for safety-critical industrial equipment are stringent around the world.
In many cases, country laws state that a third-party approved body must be involved in the manufacturing process, from design to final certification. This regulatory landscape can be confusing for manufacturers, and in some cases can prevent them from entering into new markets.
LRQA has a long track record of expertise in this area, including contributions to national codes and standards. We invest in our systems and surveyors to maintain accreditations and certifications around the world, giving you a one-stop-shop for your certification needs.
