Product Safety Testing

What is Product Safety?

Manufacturers and suppliers of Information Technology Equipment, Audio Video Equipment, equipment used for measurement, control or laboratory and medical equipment are subjected to test their products against industry standards.  The purpose of such test is to prevent hazards from happening. 

 

BACL is a Nationally Recognized Test Laboratory under OSHA’s NRTL Program and is recognized by local and federal AHJ’s, retailers, e-commerce distributors and consumers.

 

We are also NB and CBTL under IECEE CB Scheme recognized by over 50 nations, a CB for the SCC (Standards Council of Canada).

 

BACL is an OSHA – National Recognized Test Laboratory (NRTL) 

Many of OSHA’s workplace standards require that a NRTL test and certify certain types of equipment as safe for use in the workplace. NRTLs are independent laboratories that meet OSHA’s requirements for performing safety testing and certification of products used in the workplace.
