|TÜV SÜD America Adds ENERGY STAR® Certification|
Peabody, Massachusetts. Beginning January 1st, 2011 the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) began the next phase in the life of the renowned ENERGY STAR Program by beginning a major transformation in approach where all ENERGY STAR-qualified products must have the testing carried out at laboratories that are officially recognized by the EPA and certified by EPA-recognized Certification Bodies. In January 2011, TÜV SÜD was officially recognized by EPA to certify a wide range of products for the ENERGY STAR Program covering:
· Refrigerators and/or Freezers
· Battery Charging Systems
· Set-top and Cable Boxes
· Computer Servers
· Imaging Equipment
· Decorative Light Strings
Under this recognition, TÜV SÜD is able to qualify and verify that products meet ENERGY STAR requirements. In the future, TÜV SÜD will expand its accredited scope and increase its capacity to accommodate the increased demands for ENERGY STAR. TÜV SÜD strongly supports the EPA ENERGY STAR program (http://www.energystar.gov).
As a leading testing and certification organization in the world, TÜV SÜD is a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL), and is a Telecommunications Certification Body (TCB) accredited by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for EMC services. With the new EPA recognition, TÜV SÜD will provide more package services for the clients in Asia who sell products in the U.S. With our presence in Asia and the U.S., we can provide package services of initial testing and certification to ENERGY STAR, NRTL, and FCC for products manufactured in Asia, and verification sampling and testing from U.S.
