President’s Message

Dear Customers & Partners,

As we enter 2022 and look back at the many valuable lessons we have all learned during these past two challenging years, we recognize just how resilient and adaptable we can be. I am proud to say that no matter how big the challenge, we at LabTest Certification have collectively managed to turn the difficulties that the past two years have thrown our way into opportunities. This has all been possible thanks to the commitment of our whole team, the support of our loyal customers, and the shared belief that together we can!

This year brings one of the greatest opportunities for growth for LabTest. With all the major accreditations now under our belt, and further expansion of our team throughout North America and overseas, we can now offer an even more complete package for product testing, inspection, and certification worldwide. The latest addition of our new lab in Toronto, Ontario, in particular, will allow us to provide a more convenient service to our clients and partners in Eastern North America.

December 2021 marked one of the biggest milestones in the history of LabTest. Becoming an OSHA Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) for the U.S. marketplace was the last tassel we needed to complete our already vast accreditation/recognition portfolio. To see the list of all the achievements that our organization has been able to accomplish, in our short history, it’s quite humbling. To list a few:

Accredited Certification Body by Standards Council of Canada (SCC)

– ISO 17025 Accredited Testing Laboratory by an ILAC Signatory member

– Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) by OSHA

– Recognized Notified Body for the European Union

– Recognized Approved Body for the United Kingdom

– Accredited Telecommunication Certification Body (TCB)

– Recognized IECEx Scheme Member

– Recognized IECEE CB Scheme Member

As important as accomplishments are, we also understand that, especially in the past few years, not everyone has been as fortunate and therefore, this year, we will continue in our commitment to support our communities, wherever possible.

I am proud to be part of this great team! My goal is to remain focused on the basics that have brought us to where we are today, which is to build long-lasting relationships and maintain excellent communication with our partners and customers.

We are not perfect, but we strive for perfection, and this is why our clients’ feedback is important to us. Positive feedback is always great to hear, however, the only way to improve is knowing where changes are needed. Therefore, if you would like to contribute any insights that would help us serve you better, please feel free to email me directly at kdhillon@labtestcert.com.

Wishing everyone a successful year ahead,

Kavinder Dhillon, P.L.Eng.
