New testing laboratory for fire reaction requirements of cables
According to the Construction Product Regulation, CPR (EU 305/2011) all construction products that are installed permanently to buildings must comply with certain requirements.
For cables, the requirements are applied to e.g. energy transfer, control and communication cables and they have been in force since July 2017.
SGS Fimko has been rewarded with the EU Notified Body status on December 18th, 2018 and SGS Fimko testing activities were accredited by FINAS on February 7th, 2020 for testing the cables for the CPR requirements.*) We perform cable tests for the fire reaction requirements according to standard EN 50575 in our Keuruu laboratory.
The new competence area extends the present SGS Fimko safety testing services for cables performed in our Takomotie testing laboratory.
We offer the cable testing and certification service with competitive delivery time and cost-effective total solution.
We can accomplish the factory production control visits with the SGS Group local auditors.
The extended testing service serves especially the Nordic and European cable manufacturers.
