Feb. 19, 2018 – TÜV SÜD, a provider of testing, auditing, inspection and certification services, has opened a new regulatory compliance testing lab in Ottawa, Ont., saying it is poised to become one of TÜV SÜD’s premier locations for safety, electromagnetic compatibility, wireless and network equipment building systems (NEBS) testing.

Staffed by 12 employees, the 23,000-square-foot lab will offer wireless and EMC testing utilizing 10-meter and 3-meter ambient free semi-anechoic chambers. Environmental, power and safety testing is also available with equipment that has been recently upgraded to meet new market demands, says TÜV SÜD, adding that additional investment in early 2018 will expand wireless testing capabilities to better serve that expanding market.

Describing it self as the only NEBS compliance lab in the region, TÜV SÜD says it plans to maintain the necessary ISO 17025 lab accreditation and Verizon Independent Testing Laboratories NEBS Testing Certification program accreditation. The NEBS program helps expedite product-to-market cycles for Verizon’s telecommunications equipment vendors and creates more economical compliance testing processes.

“TÜV SÜD has been aggressively investing and expanding in Ontario and Quebec for more than 10 years. This new lab offers our local customers a complete regulatory testing solution and aligns with our North America strategy to become the leader in wireless and EMC testing services,” said Darryl Fleger, Canadian Country Manager, TÜV SÜD Canada.
