- UKAS lab tested to British and European standards
- Quality assured
- Kitemark certificate of conformity issued
The BSI Kitemark is recognised the world over as representing quality, trust and reliability. BSI Kitemark testing on cables offers an unparalleled level of quality assurance. Eland Cables’ technical experts worked closely with the team at the British Standards Institution to develop this important new third-party certification mark.
Paul Turner, Product Certification Manager at BSI, says, “ BSi were developing a pilot scheme and Eland approached us at a really good time. The Cable Verification Kitemark was created in demand from industry to be able to demonstrate that the product meets the required quality and safety standards that surround it. Eland have developed the capability to demonstrate to their clients that they meet these quality standards and safety standards.”
To hold this Kitemark, the cable must undergo extensive testing in a UKAS accredited facility, measured against British and European standards. Cable undergo rigorous testing across core sizes and configurations to test each component constructional layer. In achieving the Kitemark it demonstrates the cable meets relevant performance safety standards – essentially, giving independent verification that it does exactly what it should do.
Ivan Cleere, Head of Technical at Eland Cables, says “In adding the BSi Cable Testing Kitemark to our accreditations we are proud to be technically at the leading edge of cable compliance. In offering independent verification of the cable alongside our rigorous QA protocols, it delivers a product that our customers can trust.”
As the first company to achieve the Kitemark it puts Eland Cables at the forefront of cable compliance, and gives our customers the added comfort of t a third-party mark of quality.
Paul Turner concludes, “Eland Cables have a great commitment to continuous improvement and it was great to be able to work with them as the pilot for this scheme.”
Eland Cables and BSI – together creating a new benchmark in cable compliance.
