Eland Cables recognised for testing capabilities under IECEE CB Scheme

Eland Cables testing facility, The Cable Lab®, has added IECEE CB Testing Laboratory (CBTL) status to its list of world-class accreditations. They join only a handful of other cable testing laboratories worldwide, giving them the ability to test cables on behalf of BSI under the IECEE CB Scheme.

Eland Cables has long held ISO/IEC 17025 accredited laboratory status, the gold standard for testing facilities, but this new accolade further recognises their commitment to cable compliance.

The International Electrotechnical Committee (IEC) operate the IEC System of Conformity Assessment Schemes for Electrotechnical Equipment and Components (IECEE).  The CB Scheme acts as a passport for international market access, certifying products including electrical cables against IEC standards.

Holly Rossington, Electrical Certification Team Leader at BSI commented:

“With The Cable Lab achieving IECEE CBTL status it allows us to continue to work closely together in our common goal of maintaining and elevating cable standards both in the UK and around the world.”

With many countries preferring to specify to IEC rather than national standards for electrical engineering installations – for availability, standardisation or operational reasons – having formal certification to these standards offers valuable assurances of quality and compliance.

Ivan Cleere, Head of Technical/QA, Eland Cables said:

“Our IECEE CBTL accreditation is further recognition of the value and importance of The Cable Lab®. It means we can now do even more to support international standards compliance throughout the supply chain.”

For Eland Cables, CBTL status underlines their work on international projects and recognises their expertise in testing to IEC standards, as well as British & European standards under ISO/IEC 17025. It is expertise that can be of benefit to its customers, supporting specification and technical queries.

JS Pelland, Director, Eland Cables concluded:

“Our customers and their projects span the globe, and they rely on us for our technical expertise and project services as well as the cables we supply. IECEE CBTL status gives them another reason to trust our commitment to quality and compliance.”
