Currently, SGS is the only Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) qualified to test for these safety standards in the USA.

These 14 standards are part of a larger expansion in OSHA-approved capabilities at SGS’s state-of-the-art testing facilities world-wide. “I am excited to announce that SGS’s NRTL program has just expanded, adding 63 new standards to our scope,” said David Chu, SGS EVP for Electrical & Electronic Products. “SGS is committed to providing clients with the best service possible in all of our 20 OSHA approved locations.”

In total, the scope of SGS’s NRTL capability has expanded to include 63 new standards, covering a wide range of household appliances, renewable energy equipment, power tools and lighting.

This is the latest expansion in the scope of OSHA-approved capabilities at SGS’s testing facilities. The NRTL approved laboratories offer a full suite of services and cover a wide range of products including audio-visual, IT, wireless, medical, household, lighting, and other consumer and industrial electrical equipment.
