ASTA Test Certificates provide authoritative objective evidence that your bespoke equipment is compliant to relevant standards and provides you with an independent compliance test certificate for one or a number of samples. Certification does not involve inspection of the manufacturing facility or the production processes. The document issued is now known as an ‘ASTA Certificate of Verification Test’.
Only recognized laboratories may perform tests to support the issue of ASTA Certificates and Test Reports in accordance with ASTA’s rules and regulations. ASTA observers witness the tests on behalf of ASTA and the ASTA observers draft the ASTA reports and certificates which are then sent to the ASTA office for verification and issue. The ASTA Certificate issued is sealed and bound to prevent misuse.
