Newtown, CT — The Standards Council of Canada (SCC) has accredited TÜV Rheinland of North America as a Special Inspection Body authorized to perform field evaluations of electrical equipment in Canada.

The SCC accreditation permits TÜVRheinland to perform field inspections of electrical equipment and apply approval labels to systems in Canada, in accordance with SPE-1000-09, Model Code for the Field Evaluation of Electrical Equipment.

“Canada represents an important marketplace for TÜVRheinland, and offering this capability to our existing North American as well as global customer base reinforces our commitment to the area,” said Udo Heinz, division manager of the industrial machinery division at TÜVRheinland. “The SCC Special Inspection Body accreditation complements the field inspection service we have already been offering in the US for nearly a decade.”

The inspection body accreditation applies for any equipment imported into or manufactured within Canada, as well as uncertified equipment not bearing a Canadian listing mark. Additionally, TÜVRheinland can evaluate batch inspections through this accreditation.
