TRaC appoints Chinese partner for European certification and testing
26 Oct 2010
Regulatory compliance company TRaC has announced the appointment of Guangzhou Certitek Testing Service Co Ltd to the TRaC Partner Programme.
The service provided by TRaC via Certitek covers the Machinery Safety Directive 2006/42/EC in support of CE marking, testing and certification.
Under the agreement, Certitek will be able to assess machinery against the European Machinery Safety Directive in China making the service to manufacturers exporting to the EU much more cost effective. TRaC is a UK Notified Body for the Machinery Safety Directive and as such underwrites and signs off the work carried out by Certitek. This gives assurance to EU importers that the machines fully comply with the requirements of the Directive.
Mark Heaven, CEO at TRaC, stated: “Certitek is a professional and respected test and inspection company and I am delighted it has joined the TRaC Partner Programme. Certitek is a very positive addition to the Programme, giving manufacturers in China direct access to TRaC’s certification services. The company also affords our European and North American clients direct access to the China Compulsory Certification or CCC Mark covering 19 product groups.”
On joining the TRaC Partner Programme, Mr Benjamin Soung, General Manager of Guangzhou Certitek Testing Service Co. Ltd stated, “TRaC will enable Chinese companies to obtain European Machinery Safety certification and enter the European market without risk. Certitek can be assured of strong technical support from TRaC for Machinery Safety, Low Voltage Safety and EMC, whilst Chinese manufacturers can now take advantage of a local testing facility at Certitek and the services of a contracted TRaC engineer. Together, Certitek and TRaC will provide our Chinese clients with the latest information on Safety and EMC regulation in Europe."
