Lighting Testing & Certification

Whether looking for Testing, Inspection, or Certification for your Lighting products, needing a Preliminary Design Review, Field Evaluation, or Certification to ISO 9001, LabTest Certification has the solution for you!

The Lighting industry is probably the one industry that’s seen one of the most rapid evolutions over the past few centuries. Lighting enables us to do activities at night, create cozy environments in our homes, gardens, or at workplaces. Incandescent and then fluorescent bulbs, something that nowadays we all take for granted, were one of the first breakthroughs in lighting, until LEDs made their appearance. After that, lighting took off and continued to evolve rapidly into newer and newer technologies.

Today, it’s become less and less uncommon to see lighting fixtures incorporate Internet of Things (IoT) into their design that enable the end user to control the device with a tap of a finger on a cellphone. From the first incandescent filaments to fluorescent lamps, and nowadays, high tech lighting products using intricate LED components, one thing is for sure: this industry hasn’t seen it all yet.

LabTest Certification is an OSHA Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) for Lighting products.

Lighting Standard Requirements

As the Lighting technology continues to evolve, so do Safety and Performance standards. In order to keep up with the new products coming into the market, standards need to be updated, revised, and at times, replaced with new ones to make sure all safety concerns are addressed. Different markets have different compliance requirements. Lighting products must be evaluated to the latest version of the applicable Electrical Safety and EMC standards of the country they are intended for.
