Our core business has been in the past, marine type approval testing of equipment for offshore and sub-sea applications. Recently our portfolio of accreditation has expanded to include a range of industries. Our experience covers various areas of professional equipment where environmental conditions can be considered extreme and where safe and reliable operation is essential: Medical equipment, rolling stock equipment, railway equipment, enclosures, VMS’s (Variable Message Signs), lighting, roadside equipment, equipment for mounting near reciprocal machinery, subsea and offshore equipment.

Working to the latest revisions of standards set by the world leading classification societies, we produce a testing program using the worst case parameters from the leading worldwide classification societies. This eliminates the need to repeat testing when applying for new approvals to allow for use of your equipment on different class society vessels.

We can draw upon experience in the most critical of international standards across many organisations: British Standards (BS EN), United States Military Standards (MIL STD), ASTM International and International Organization for Standardisation (ISO)

Our fully equipped laboratory uses state of the art monitoring equipment which allows us to carry out a standard test suite and produce comprehensive and detailed reports which satisfy the criteria for most international standards organisations.
