Since an ever-increasing of people are aware of protecting the environment, they pursue eco-friendly and energy-saving products. One significant example is the popularity of the energy-efficient heat pump worldwide. It is acknowledged that the energy-efficient heat pump can save bills and costs, reduce carbon emissions, and create less noise than traditional heat pumps.
Recently, we have launched a lot of new products and have been busy testing product data to get the appropriate certification. As a professional supplier with more than 19 years in the air source heat pump industry, NEWNTIDE maintains sensitivity to the market, strictly implements certification requirements, and provides the highest quality certification services.
In this article, we will introduce the certification of some major heat pump products to facilitate the understanding of new customers entering the heat pump industry.
Major Certifications that NEWNTIDE Offers
There will be various certification requirements for heat pumps according to local regulations, hygiene, and environmental conditions. The certification standards and directives may also be adjusted over time.
1. CE Marking
CE, shorts for Conformité Européenne, is the ticket to sell heat pumps into the European market legally. It is evident that the registered goods, such as our heating and cooling heat pumps, comply with the European regulatory standards.
In addition, the CE marking is divided into two essential parts: CE EMC and CE LVD. The EMC is short for Electromagnetic Compatibility and is a set standard to evaluate an electrical or electronic device. On the other hand, the LVD is an acronym for Low Voltage Directive, a mandatory prerequisite for attaining the CE certificate inclusively.
These two markings allow our energy-efficient heat pumps to be safe for trade and retail purposes in the European Economic Area (EEA). In addition, the CE marking marked on our heat pumps assures the European customers that our products have successfully passed the assessment for all their safety, health, and environmental protection protocols.
2. CB Certification
CB stands for Certification Body. CB is used in many countries, including some countries other than the European Union and the European Union. It works effectively because the actual certification body behind the strongly accepted certificate is IEC, which is short for International Electro-technical Commission.
As the name implies, the IEC CB is a conformity system of protocols that ensure an electrical energy-efficient heat pump or any other electronic equipment is thoroughly tested and confidently accredited following the multi-lateral trade agreement accepted worldwide.
3. UKCA Marking
The UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) marking, effective on the 1st of January, 2021, is a relatively new certification that is used for goods being sold on the market in Great Britain. It is our ultimate entrance gate to the profitable market of Great Britain.
Another benefit of UKCA marking is that it verifies other traded heat pumps, which formerly needed a CE label to get through the official authority checks. Thus, our energy-efficient heat pumps that pass this test procedure will be displayed and sold to UK consumers exclusively.
4. SAA Certification
The abbreviation for SAA is the Standards Association of Australia. It is a bilateral approval system authorized by the two distinctly empowered bodies functioning by the name of the Joint Accreditation Service of Australia and New Zealand (JAS – ANZ). This third-party certification officially permits electrical devices such as the energy-efficient heat pump and other similar equipment to be fit for import and sale in the Australian market.
Furthermore, verified by SAA certification, our heating, and cooling heat pumps are guaranteed to comply with Australia’s national standards’ quality management and safety regulations. Thus, the SAA certification allows us a free pass into the Australian territory.
5. ETL Certification
ETL is short for Electrical Testing Laboratories, a certifying operative division of the Intertek Testing Laboratories, which equally works hand in hand with the Nationally Recognized Tested Laboratories (NRTL).
This certification has one goal to serve, which is to assure, test, inspect, and rightly certify various industrial electrical products that satisfy specific requirements, like energy-efficient heat pump equipment.
With ETL-certified air source heat pump products, we can demonstrate that our advanced technology machines meet the superior design and performance standards suitable to be presented in front of the consumers of North America.
6. SASO Certification
The Saudi Standards, Metrology, and Quality Organization (SASO) is a conformity system that is highly recognized in the Saudi Arabian Kingdom. This certification keeps a check on the quality and safety regulations of our registered air source heat pumps without defying any directive set by the authoritative officials in the applied measure sections.
Thus, this certification signifies that our quality products are authorized to be showcased in front of the Arabian audience and are safe to sell in the Arabian Kingdom.
Significant Organizations Accredit Our Laboratory
Currently, NEWNTIDE has our laboratory center divided into two floors, which contain a product performance laboratory and a product evaluation laboratory independently.
The best part is that our laboratory is accredited by the following globally celebrated organizations that have given us a direct pass to test machine data and promptly apply for an approval certificate.
√ Certificated by CNAS
First, our high-quality laboratory for innovative technology and energy-efficient heat pump production is certified by the CNAS authority. CNAS stands for the China National Accreditation Service for Conformity Assessment, known far and wide for its strict regulations and rules of conduct. So, this recognition has made it evident that our laboratory system hardware operations, testing equipment, and management skills are of international standards undoubtedly.
√ Certificated by ITS
Next is the ITS organization, accredited by various world-class management systems and a renowned empowered body of certifying laboratory operations. NEWNTIDE made an effort to get approved by this prestigious organization victoriously. Being recognized by the ITS organization means our laboratory system has been deemed qualified for proper management and technical requirements of computing testing results set in the regulations by the directive authorities of ITS.
√ Certificated by SGS
One of the most outstanding experts in the certifying field is the SGS (Standard Global Services) organization. They are regarded as the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing, and certification organization and are also referred to as the benchmark for quality and integrity.
It's worth mentioning that the heat pump performance laboratory has achieved the ultimate -45°C ultra-low ambient temperature laboratory capacity evaluation and has earned rewarding certification by the SGS organization.
√ Certificated by Intertek and Kiwa
Lastly, let’s talk about the two globally famed certifying organizations, Intertek and Kiwa. Both trusted organizations have a lasting quality incentive and have worked as a tool in building our credibility, especially in the international energy-efficient heat pump market. By being certified through these unparalleled organizations, our laboratory system has earned the character of reliability and proved that our heat pumps and services meet all the internal and external hardware manufacturing standards.
As an expert heat pump manufacturer, NEWNTIDE has been leading the energy-efficient heat pump industry since 2003. With an impeccably skilled R&D team, we have been launching sustainable energy solutions in the national and international markets that have gained immense appreciation and popularity. To maintain our credibility, we have been working daily to earn certifications that can land us a solid ground to build a consistent product launching schedule in the energy-efficient heat pump market globally.
