Whether in the residential or commercial sphere, it is absolutely essential to ensure the safe operation of HVAC / R equipment. And as regulations for such devices are constantly evolving in North America and around the world, manufacturers must stay abreast of changing requirements and applicable standards, the most important of which include:

  • CAN / CSA C22.2 No 120 standard on refrigeration equipment;
  • CSA C22.2 No. 187 standard for electrostatic air purifiers;
  • CSA C22.2 No. 236 standard for heating and air conditioning equipment;
  • IEC 60335-2-30 standard on household and similar electrical appliances, more particularly space heaters;
  • IEC 60335-2-40 standard on household and similar electrical appliances, more particularly electric heat pumps, air conditioners and dehumidifiers;
  • The UL 1995 standard for heating and air conditioning equipment.

The products we test and certify include:

  • Air conditioners;
