BASEC Approved Cable
Eland Cables supplies a wide range of British standard cables accredited by BASEC.
BASEC's certification programmes currently extend to product certification and BASEC marking assessed design, process capability, and HAR scheme approval. Upon approving a specific cable range against the relevant standards, BASEC issues a product certification schedule and listing. This provides confirmation that the product complies with the standards.
The BASEC mark of approval represents an endorsement of safety and quality by one of the largest accreditation bodies in Europe. It complements the testing programme of our own in-house testing laboratory, The Cable Lab®, and forms part of our commitment to supplying quality cables which have been tested to the highest standards.
