    Testing of installation materials and components

    Testing and certification of installation materials and components, such as switches, regulators, plugs, sockets, and more.

    Let's get started

    Nemko provides testing and certification of a broad variety of components and installation materials. Our experts will help you get your products to market, anywhere in the world.

    Installation products are critical products anywhere in the world. At Nemko we are ready to help you make sure these fulfil the requirements and are certified if necessary. We have both the knowledge, expertise and equipment to help you reach your time-to-market target for installation materials and components.

    Installation materials and components are increasingly connected to our smart houses via wireless connection and applications. In other words, these are products that make up the “internet of things” (IoT). For example, a switch is no longer just a mechanical button on your wall, it can also be remotely accessed by your cellphone through the internet and control more than only “on/off” functionality. At Nemko, we can guide and support you with safety, EMC, radio and cyber security regulations in the countries you need to access.

    Why Nemko?

    Nemko has been performing tests of installation materials for more than 80 years. We have a small and flexible organization that provides personal follow-up, efficient turnaround and a constant focus on value.

    Which product categories and standards does Nemko offer testing and certification services for installation materials and components?

    Nemko offers testing and certification to many standards. Plugs and sockets are standardized, but all countries have their own regulations. With more than 80 years of experience, we know what regulations apply to the different markets.
