Intertek Named “EPA Recognized Certification Body” for ENERGY STAR®

Intertek, a global leader in testing, inspection and certification services, announced today that it has been named an “EPA Recognized Certification Body” (CB) for the new ENERGY STAR® Enhanced Testing and Verification procedures. Effective December 31, 2010, the new ENERGY STAR® third-party certification requirements will require manufacturers seeking use of the ENERGY STAR® label to submit products for third-party certification from EPA Recognized Certification Bodies.

Intertek is the only EPA Recognized CB which covers certification for all gas and electrical ENERGY STAR® product categories, including more than 60 product types across Appliances, Home Electronics, HVAC, Information Technology, Lighting, and Commercial Food Service Equipment.

For the new ENERGY STAR® third-party certification requirements, Intertek will provide 24-hour certification, after required testing parameters are met, to meet time-to-market demands for manufacturers seeking ENERGY STAR® approvals.

“This distinction by the EPA is a crowning achievement for Intertek,” said Gregg Tiemann, Chief Executive of Intertek’s Commercial and Electrical division. “Being the only EPA Recognized Certification Body that has the breadth to cover all gas and electrical ENERGY STAR® product categories is clear affirmation of Intertek’s market leading position and global expertise in Energy Efficiency across all types of products.”

For manufacturers requiring testing, Intertek recently deployed 18 global Energy Efficiency Centers of Excellence, throughout North America, Asia and Europe. These Energy Efficiency labs provide immediate testing capacity for qualification and verification testing, strategically located in key regional manufacturing centers. Additionally, for ENERGY STAR® Partners that will conduct testing in their own labs, as part of Intertek’s SATELLITE Data Acceptance Program, Partners will submit test data to Intertek for engineering review to product specification requirements, and then ENERGY STAR® certification will be awarded for compliant products.

Intertek has been a leading Energy Efficiency testing and certification organization for more than half a century. Intertek provides testing, certification and market verification services for Energy Efficiency schemes globally, including DoE, EPA (ENERGY STAR®), Natural Resources Canada (NRCan), Energy Related Products (ErP) Directive, EcoLabel, SASO, and many others. Intertek is a testing partner for the Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) and will provide ENERGY STAR® services through the widely known AHRI certification programs. Intertek is also a testing partner for the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers’ (AHAM) Verification Programs.
