Fall-arrest equipment testing- INSPEC testing and certification

INSPEC International, the independent provider of testing and certification services for manufacturers of PPE, has added personal fall-arrest equipment to the list of products it can now test and certify.

Under the terms of the new award, INSPEC — which is UKAS-accredited — has been endorsed to test fall-arrest equipment to most of the European and American standards in support of the CE Mark and SEI Mark. Further national and regional standards will be added soon.

INSPEC says its new, purpose-built facility features all the necessary static and dynamic test rigs, custom-designed to satisfy the specific industry standards for fall-arrest equipment. These specify a range of tensile and compression tests and, of course, the various drop tests.

Said Paul Clarke, INSPEC’s managing director: “We are very pleased to announce that we can now offer in-house testing and certification of personal fall-arrest equipment. Our global network means we are in a unique position to provide our customers with a complete package of services and this latest accreditation adds further strength to our service offering.”
