AIMED AT...

We have accredited and recognized (ENAC, LOVAG, LAPEM..) electrical equipment laboratories which are leaders in Spain and Portugal by number of annual tests and facilities. TECNALIA is a European Union Notified Body for Directive 2006/95/EC on Low Voltage Safety.

We perform over 300 types of electric tests (power, high voltage, low voltage, power electronics and environmental) in accordance with international, European and local standards: IEC, EN, UNE, ANSI, UL and ASTM.

We have over 20 years' experience in electrical testing and our experts participate in leading technical and regulatory forums for the development of new standards.
