Per voi come produttori, distributori o rivenditori, noi testiamo, valutiamo e certifichiamo tramite processo di certificazione la sicurezza e la qualità dei vostri prodotti.
La varietà dei prodotti sul mercato oggi non può essere trascurata. Per di più non esistono standard uniformi a livello mondiale sulla sicurezza e sulla qualità. La maggior parte dei paesi ha leggi, direttive e norme proprie che i prodotti e i servizi devono rispettare.
Etichettare il prodotto con un certificato TÜV Thüringen fornisce la garanzia sulla sicurezza, la qualità e il valore d’uso del prodotto, e consente una maggiore visibilità sul mercato. In molti casi l’etichettatura TÜV apre le porte a mercati specifici per voi.
Se volete testare prodotti industriali o di consumo, secondo standard nazionali o internazionali, noi proviamo, testiamo e certifichiamo i vostri prodotti così da migliorare la fiducia dei vostri clienti e aumentare il vostro successo.
RETIE - TÜV Thüringen and Certification Body of Colombia sign agreement on cooperation
The Corporation Center for Technological Research and Development of the Electricity Sector – CIDET and TÜV Thüringen have reached an agreement on strategic cooperation.
In this cooperation, the focus will be on testing and certification of electric products and components destined for the South American marketplace, and in compliance with the requirements of the RETIE-Regulation.
Established in 1995, CIDET incorporates Research, Testing, Certification and Training activities under one roof, providing testing and inspection services available to industry and commerce in compliance with the RETIE-Regulation and ANSI-Standards.
Moreover, CIDET is involved in industrial, power station and infrastructural projects, as well as regulatory services to government.
TÜV Thüringen and CIDET hope for major synergies to emerge notably with regard to activities for the Columbian market and international projects, centred, for instance on renewable sources of energy.
RETIE (Reglamento Técnico de Instalaciones Eléctricas) is a technical safety Regulation of the Columbian Department of Energy’s Office of Electricity Generation and Energy Delivery and contains requirements for “approval” (i.e., testing and certification) of certain products by accredited Certification Bodies.
These requirements help protect workers by ensuring products are designed for safe use in the workplace. A Certification Body generally partners directly with the manufacturer to test and certify electrical equipment and components.
The Table 2.1 of the Technical Regulation for Electrical installations RETIE defines for what electrical products is required a Product Conformity Certificate indicating that the product will perform as designed. If the equipment is to be installed in a classified area, the certificate must also clearly state that the product is rated for and complies with such requirement. The supplier has to provide certifications by recognized testing laboratories indicating that the equipment is rated to be installed in the classifies areas, as indicated on the Table 505-10.b) of the Colombian standard NTC 2050.
Expert Evaluation and Regulatory Assessment
By virtue of this Cooperation Agreement, TÜV Thüringen Italia can also service manufacturers and vendors outside of Columbia that ship their equipment, subject to RETIE and relevant NTC-standards, to buyers in Columbia
The first step to start the certification process is therefore to get in contact with our technical staff and to submit him the respective application for the RETIE-certification of the electric products.
After that the activity to perform is to establish the equivalence between the by your Company used standards and NTC (Colombian Standards).
Evaluation activities and Certification
The TÜV Thüringen engineers in Europa can perform the preliminary assessment at the point of origin:
- Review of data sheets, components, materials to be traceable to test reports in order them to be recognized.
- Factory inspection, visual inspection of products and markings
- Lab tests: Document review based on ILAC member accreditation Laboratory test reports according to ISO/IEC 17025
- Results Analysis
with the final evaluation being conducted by CIDET Certification Office in Medellín-Columbia
- Technical review and Certification decision
- Certification issuance.
Our staff of engineers is familiar with both NTC and international standards IEC and will work to ensure that your electrical equipment complies with the regulatory requirements.
To perform the customs works during importation process, there must be a local company registered as importer who shall present RETIE certificate to the Columbian authorities.
CIDET and TÜV Thüringen are not allowed to do that for the client.
