“I appreciate the lab scheduling flexibility QAI has provided on our projects. The ability to come into the lab and troubleshoot a problem as new fixes are developed reduced our time to compliance and kept the project momentum moving forward despite unplanned events. I also appreciate the straightforward communication at QAI, the staff is open and approachable. I feel QAI staff genuinely care about helping us get our products to compliance quickly and cost effectively.”

QAI Laboratories continues to be an excellent partner and has provided OPCO the direction it has required to satisfy our compliance objectives. QAI places the client’s service first; the responsiveness of the staff and commitment to excellence exceeds expectations.

“I wanted to pass along my appreciation for the exceptional service we received from QAI. They went above and beyond to help us complete the special inspection in an timely manner and we greatly appreciated the professional service”
The EMC team at QAI has been instrumental in achieving regulatory approval for our clients. The positive experience starts with the sales engineer who provides us with guidance and expertise to enable us to deliver a cost-effective certification strategy to our customers. Then the EMC gurus at the test lab take over to ensure testing and documentation are completed accurately, on-time and within-budget. We consider QAI a partner for meeting our business objectives.
“Switching to QAI was seamless for us from the start: from initial contact, to email/phone call follow ups, plan review, plant certifications/inspections, and final plan approval. Their attention to detail has allowed us to receive certification for new models faster, and in turn, allows us to get our product to market quicker. ”
“Right from the start I found QAI to be extremely helpful with providing advice and suggestions for getting my Australian imported dog wash machines CSA compliant. The staff are very accommodating to my needs and have provided very thorough inspections and reports for both electrical and plumbing compliance. I have used QAI for inspections on dog wash machines in Vancouver, Victoria and Toronto and have had the same experience with all their representatives. I have no hesitation in recommending QAI and will continue to use them exclusively for my special inspections going forward.”
