CSA Opens New LED Lighting and EEV Testing Laboratory in Guangzhou, China

CSA, a leading testing and certification organization with growing global operations, today officially announces the expansion of its Guangzhou lab with the addition of new energy efficiency verification (EEV) testing equipment and added capabilities.

“The expansion to the Guangzhou lab further demonstrates CSA’s continued commitment to expanding operations in Asia to provide its clients highly sophisticated and innovative localized testing and certification services for global markets,” said Ash Sahi, President and CEO, CSA Group. “CSA’s growth in China and throughout Asia is fundamental to its global business strategy and goal to become the first choice in providing global testing and certification services.”

In 2008, CSA established a joint venture, CCIC-CSA International Certification Company Limited, with China Certification and Inspection Group (CCIC). In November 2008, CSA International opened its first China testing and certification laboratory in Guangzhou, strengthening its commitment to the China market.

Located in the Guangzhou High-tech Development Zone, the lab comprises an area of over 3,800 m2. The expanded facility is the second CSA Guangzhou laboratory. Meeting increased demand from local producers of LED lighting products, this lab now includes LED lighting testing and certification services as well as energy efficiency verification (EEV) services. The state-of-the-art lab will also test numerous products to various international standards across a wide range of industries including gas, plumbing and electrical products.

CSA is well positioned to help its customers with this task through the employment of a team of highly-skilled engineers, testing specialists and technicians who are well trained professionals with extensive knowledge of North American and international standards.
