What is CSA SPE-1000?

CSA SPE-1000 is a Model Code for one-time approvals of General Electrical Products being installed in the field or still at the manufacturing facility, which don’t comply with the Canadian Electrical Code requirements. Also called “Special Inspection”, this type of approval must be performed by an Inspection Body accredited by the Standard Council of Canada (SCC), as per ISO 17020, such as LabTest Certification Inc.

Come funziona?

SPE-1000 applies to limited quantities, as little as one unit and a maximum of 500 units/model/year/manufacturer’s facility and is performed on a complete system. The Model Code addresses the construction, marcature, and test requirements that the equipment must meet before it can be labeled. The evaluation consists in an inspection of the product, components, and drawings and tests are performed (onsite or at the lab), as per the reference standard, to confirm compliance.

The product is then labeled with the “LC Special Inspections Label” and it can be sold in Canada. The labelling of each unit must be performed by a LabTest inspector. Lastly, local authorities will verify the correctness of the installation and electrical connection.
