In broad terms, the Nansha Laboratory provides customized testing services, including performance testing of household appliances, LED and lighting photometric testing, product reliability testing, energy efficiency testing and product inspections and factory audits. For energy efficiency testing, Nansha Laboratory provides ENERGY STAR®, NRCan, ErP, MEPS, CEC and DoE testing. These tests and audits are performed at various stages from product design to pre-shipment.
In cooperation with other UL laboratories and partner laboratories, the Nansha laboratory is also capable of offering services such as chemical testing and analysis, EMC testing, electrical and electronics testing, hardlines and softlines testing, as well as global inspections.
Targeted at manufacturers, importers, distributors and retailers, UL Verification Services help strengthen quality management throughout the retail supply chain, by ensuring compliance with customer- or buyer-defined parameters and respective regulation requirements.
