    NEW Vision Mission Values 1280x500


    We expanded rapidly to new areas, such as testing of radio interference requirements. It didn’t take long for us to become a trusted name in Scandinavia. We became known as Nemko. In the last 20 years, we’ve recognized the immense opportunities for growth, both in the scope of service and in expanding our presence beyond Scandinavia.

    In 1990 we became an independent, self-owned foundation, with a supervising council of representatives from different interest groups, including industry and trade organisations, consumer associations, and utilities. The foundation established and became the sole owner of Nemko AS, the central operating company responsible for the Nemko Group. Today, Nemko offers testing, inspection, and certification services concerning products and systems on a worldwide basis. Our global network of experts and partners in Asia, North America, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa helps customers comply with an increasingly complex set of requirements in more than 150 countries. We are proud to serve our customers in a reliable, efficient, and open manner, providing local presence coupled with global knowledge.
