Fall arrest equipment test
25 January 2013
Independent provider of testing and certification services to manufacturers of personal protective equipment (PPE), INSPEC International, has added personal fall arrest equipment to the list of products it can now test
The company is accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS). Under the terms of the new award INSPEC has been endorsed to test fall arrest equipment to most European and American standards in support of the CE Mark and SEI Mark. Further national and regional standards will be added soon.
As one of the first Notified Bodies for the European PPE Directive, INSPEC already provides test and certification services for helmets, eye protectors, sunglasses, hearing protectors, respiratory protection and breathing apparatus (RPE, RPD), gloves and chemical protective clothing.
