EXPORT? THINK Globally TEST Locally


Cranage is an Authorised Test Facility for testing and certifying products against American (UL) and Canadian (CSA) standards. Third party testing and NRTL certification is a legal requirement in these countries and we offer the QPS mark as a recognised alternative to UL/CSA approval.


As a Local Technical Representative of QPS, we also test products on your premises and provide CB Certification. This is a key requirement for any exporter seeking new business opportunities. A CB Certificate is like having a CE Mark but reduces barriers to trade on a worldwide scale.


We also offer a range of services for UK manufacturers exporting to the Middle East and Africa. Import inspection authorities in these countries require a Certificate of Conformity issued by an approved accreditation body otherwise consignments cannot be cleared through customs. Without appropriate documentation shipments may be withheld or returned to the country of origin and the importer fined.


Benefits of using Cranage:-


• Product approval timescales reduced from months to weeks

• Electrical product specialist

• One-stop shop for export compliance
