SGS Fimko offers CB EMC certification on the basis of Applica Consulting tests in Norway
SGS Fimko, a member of the world’s leading testing, certification, verification and inspection company SGS SA, and the Norwegian expert and testing organisation Applica Consulting have deepened cooperation on the Norwegian testing and certification market. The IECEE (Worldwide System for Conformity Testing and Certification of Electrotechnical Equipment and Components) has granted Applica Consulting a laboratory status under the IECEE CB Scheme for specific EMC tests. SGS Fimko CB certificates with Applica Consulting test reports open the world market.
The cooperation is a part of SGS Fimko’s Scandinavia strategy and will significantly strengthen the market position of both companies in Norway.

In addition to EMC tests Applica Consulting will offer SGS Fimko’s certification services and safety testing in Norway. SGS Fimko’s safety and EMC certificates provide companies with access to the global market. The number of granted CB and CB EMC certificates by SGS Fimko grew last year 40 %.
