BSRIA has extended the scope of its UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) accredited testing to include the latest version of the high temperature fan standard BS EN12101-3:2015 and the heat pump standard BS EN14825:2016.
Following more than a decade of testing to the original version of 12101-3, the move to the 2015 version demonstrates BSRIA’s commitment to supporting fan manufacturers in CE marking their continually developing product ranges. Further enhancements in testing capability are planned to ensure operation with inverters can be demonstrated when required.
BSRIA operates a specialist heat pump test facility offering clients testing in accordance with a range of UK and European incentive schemes, quality labels and directives. BSRIA already provides accredited heat pump testing in accordance with BS EN 14511, BS EN 12102 and BS EN 14825:2013.
Tom Garrigan, test house manager at BSRIA (pictured), said: “The extension of our scope complements our existing UKAS accredited testing services and provides the customer with the assurance they are getting internationally recognised quality test data. Independent laboratory testing gives confidence to customers and consumers and plays an important role when delivering a product to market.
We are delighted both the high temperature fan and the heat pump test standards were approved simultaneously.”
