Safety Inspections and Audits

Our expert safety engineers can inspect and survey your equipment to identify possible product safety deficiencies. We evaluate it for construction details, design requirements, and component selection against the applicable Australian and European harmonized standards. We also review schematics and instruction manuals for appropriate labelling and safety information details. Our test reports outline the recommended corrective actions, with an emphasis on the design considerations that may also affect EMC compliance. We also specify a suite of tests which will demonstrate conformity for the product. “Top-up” testing to Australian differences is provided where the report falls short of the AS/NZS standard.
