Special Inspection/ Field Evaluation of electrical equipment

Nemko offers Special Inspection (SI) / Field Evaluation as a fast, economical alternative to traditional Product Safety Certification for Electrical products for the Canadian marketplace.

Inspection is performed in accordance with CSA Publication SPE-1000 (Model code for the field evaluation of electrical equipment).  This document provides guidance for identifying compliance with basic safety principles.

The testing and evaluation is intended to be non-destructive, and is based on published requirements accepted by the Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ).

Complying products will be immediately labeled by a qualified Nemko Inspector with a distinctive, serialized and tamperproof label.
