Pennsylvania lab approved to conduct testing of lighting products for various regional energy-efficiency programmes
American testing company UL has been given authorisation from International Accreditation Service to test lighting products for the Egyptian market at its Allentown laboratory in Pennsylvania.
The lab will conduct testing of lighting products for various energy-efficiency programmes to meet specifications issued by regional regulators, utilities, consultants, and contractors.
Commenting on the development, UL Middle East’s vice president and general manager, Hamid Syed, said: “Manufacturers who wish to establish and maintain their presence in Egypt are expected to meet certain technical specifications and undergo certain testing and certifications and we will now be able to help them with a comprehensive solution.
“Egypt will now have easier and greater access to the latest authentic products meeting international standards and will help the local manufacturers thus boosting its trade industry.”
