Intertek, global supplier of testing, inspection, and certification services, was named an "EPA Recognized Certification Body” (CB) for the new Energy Star Enhanced Testing and Verification procedures.
The procedures will be effective Dec. 31, 2010 and will require that manufacturers submit third-party certification from EPA Recognized Certification Bodies in order to qualify for the Energy Star label.
Intertek said it is the only EPA Recognized CB covering certification for all gas and electrical Energy Star product categories, including home appliances, home electronics, HVAC equipment, information technology, lighting, and commercial food service equipment.
Intertek said it intends to provide 24-hour certification, after required testing parameters are met, for the new Energy Star third-party certification requirements.
