Need fast and efficient product approval?
Attesta provides best-in-class Field Evaluations to ensure your
product meets applicable UL, ANSI and NFPA Standards.
UL, ANSI and NFPA Standards Field Evaluation by Attesta
Attesta’s Field Evaluation / Special Inspections offers U.S. standards approval for your products, done to the UL, ANSI and NFPA Standards.
Field Evaluation is an alternative form of product approval, which allows for a faster and more cost effective product approval process when there are limited quantities involved.
Products that are found to meet all applicable requirements are labelled on the spot, subject to the requirements of the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ).
Product Approval anytime, anywhere…
In the initial design stage and need to understand compliance requirements?
We can conduct a review of your design documents prior to equipment build. This can save the need to make product revisions later on.
Want the inspection at the point of manufacture?
We can come to the equipment assembly location and evaluate your product before you ship it to the final destination. In case any revisions are needed, you can take care of them in your shop prior to shipment.
Equipment already at the final location?
We can come to wherever your equipment is located and evaluate your product to meet your schedule requirement. We understand your need for urgency!
Easy as 1, 2, 3…
Contact us by phone or email and let us know your requirements (both technical and schedule).
Send us as much information as possible (drawings, photos, manuals, etc.)
Our Team evaluates your product.
This starts with an initial documentation review followed by a site visit to inspect the equipment.
In some cases we are able to complete this step the same day of your request, but other times it may be a day or two depending on the logistics involved. In case there are findings which require correction, we can either wait while you fix them on the spot, or return when it is convenient for you.
Product Approval on the spot.
Products that are compliant with requirements will immediately be affixed with a label to signify approval.
Corresponding conformity certificates will be sent within a couple of hours of the approval by email.
The Attesta Approval Mark
Our signature monogram represents our assurance to you that every “t” has been crossed, every “i” has been dotted, and every box has been checked off.
Our field evaluation marks of approval are authorized for use by the International Accreditation Service.
Importance of Field Evaluation
Field Evaluation is an alternative form of product approval which is permitted when product certification is not practical. It is a critical process that requires third party Inspection to ensure compliance with National Standards for electrical safety. Without this process, there would be many industrial and commercial custom pieces of electrical equipment that would never be subjected to an independent review for compliance with the required UL, ANSI and NFPA standards.
Field Evaluation typically applies to electrical equipment which is produced, sold or distributed in small quantities in the USA. It is instrumental in establishing compliance with National Standards for electrical safety on customized equipment which is manufactured for a very specific purpose.
If you have come across electrical equipment in your organization that does not bear a mark of approval (either a Certification mark or a Field Evaluation mark), your best option to ensure compliance with Electrical Safety standards is to contact us for a Field Evaluation. We can help you prevent injury and/or property damage on account of an electrical shock or fire.
Field Evaluation can only be done under a strict set of guidelines which are detailed in the NFPA 790 and NFPA 791. These requirements were established by ACES (American Council for Electrical Safety) in accordance with international standards such as ISO17020, ISO17065 and ISO Guide 65. Attesta is an accredited Field Evaluation Body which means that Attesta’s entire organization complies with the requirements of competency to perform Field Evaluations.
