Field Evaluation/Special Inspection
Safety regulations in North America make it mandatory for electrical and electronic products to be approved. Certification is the most common form of approval. However, in some situations, Field Evaluation is also another acceptable form of approval recognized by the regulatory authorities in both, Canada and the USA.
Our Field Evaluation service, with locations throughout Canada and the USA, provides you with fast and cost effective on-site testing and evaluation of your products to technical requirements accepted by the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ). The inspection site may be the place of installation, manufacturing, distribution, storage, or any other location. We will even travel to Europe and Asia to provide inspections for products destined for North America.
You may choose Field Evaluation if any one or more of the following situations applies to you:
  • Time is of the essence and certification is not practical.
  • The equipment is already shipped or installed.
  • You receive the equipment in limited quantities or batches, 500 maximum per model per year.
  • You are testing the market and may not continue production.
  • You want to make sure the product complies with the essential requirements before submitting it for certification.
  • You modify an already certified piece of equipment .
Complying products will be labeled on the spot using a serialized Field Evaluation Label issued by QPS.
