QAI’s California-based facility has partnered with BSI to offer electrical safety approvals under the CB Scheme Program
Rancho Cucamonga, CA – QAI Laboratories is proud to announce the cooperation with BSI, the business improvement company, that broadens the service offering of both companies for the international market. As a National Certification Body (NCB), BSI has approved QAI’s laboratory in Rancho Cucamonga, CA as a certification body testing laboratory (CBTL) under the IECEE CB Scheme program for a wide variety of electrical products.
Through this partnership with BSI, QAI’s laboratory in Rancho Cucamonga, CA is able to provide testing and certification of electrical products including lighting, industrial controls, medical equipment and measurement and laboratory equipment for the international market. QAI will provide localized service to BSI’s customer base in North America, leveraging QAI’s NRTL and SCC accreditations, as well as a wide scope of testing capability for physical and mechanical properties, fire testing (Steiner tunnel flame spread, flammability, radiant flux, combustion, fire resistance), and field evaluation services.
QAI will draw on BSI’s vast knowledge and experience providing testing and certification services for a wide array of products for international markets to provide a global solution to QAI’s existing clients. Both company’s expect this partnership to offer ‘one-stop-shop’ services to more clientele while maintaining the service levels that our customers have come to expect.
IECEE CB Scheme is highly regarded in the industry because:
“We’re thrilled to have an opportunity to partner with QAI to provide our clients access to their industry-leading expertise and world-class facilities,” said Paul Turner, Technical Product Manager, BSI. “With recent world events, factories and facilities around the globe have been closed, or working at limited capacity, and shipping logistics have been similarly challenged – by having this new testing lab close to many of our key clients, we will be able to continue to serve their needs.”
“It was quickly evident that BSI shares QAI’s customer-centric focus and values of quality and integrity. This partnership will leverage our combined expertise and geographical footprint to provide global product approval solutions. Our respective customers will gain immediate benefit from our extended service offerings and localized support. QAI is extremely proud to formalize this partnership with a well-respected and trusted brand such as BSI,” – Kent Adamson, President, QAI
