Fast North American HAZLOC approval
ExVeritas can offer testing and assessment to UL and/or CSA listed standards for North American Hazardous Location approval under our unique agreement with TRaC Global and MET.
For North American listing (certification) testing is carried out against the relevant UL and/or CSA listed standard for your product type. This type of testing can only be conducted by an approved test body (NRTL or SCC approval laboratory). ExVeritas is an audited and approved third party test laboratory with MET Lab which entitles ExVeritas to conduct testing in the UK for MET certification under the NRTL and SCC schemes and our agreements with TRaC Global as a Certification Body.
Products requiring Hazardous Area listing in North America are also required to meet general industrial safety standards such as UL61010. This is not self-certification as it is in Europe under CE Marking and can require a significant amount of test and assessment.
All certification is granted by MET Labs, Baltimore. ExVeritas conducts the required tests and assessments and generates the required documentation which is submitted to TRaC for review, and MET to issue the certification.
