Quality testing firm Intertek has bagged a deal from National Regulatory Authority (NTRA), Egypt, for testing wireless and telecom products manufactured by Indian companies for the Egyptian market. Both the firms have signed an agreement in this regard.
According to the MoU Intertek’s Electrical division will perform tests for the products, while the Government Trade Services division will conduct pre-shipment inspections.
Intertek’s electrical and electronics testing laboratory in Mumbai will now be issuing test reports (Safety and EMC) along with PVOC to customers and the testing will be performed in line with IEC standards.
“We take immense pride in being a trusted partner for NTRA. Our vast experience in testing and certification globally will ensure that our services will fully meet the mandates set by NTRA. Such fast moving emerging markets require experienced organizations to provide these services to ensure compliance with national and international standards on behalf of the industry and the general public,” said Sandeep Vig, Director Intertek India.
The NTRA has a set of rules and specifications for telecom equipment being introduced to the Egyptian market. To ensure that all products meet the required parameter set, NTRA has selected Intertek as one three third-party international companies in India for the testing and accreditation of products to be exported to Egypt.
The London headquartered Intertek also believes that Indian government’s Make In India project, besides local manufacturing, will also boost export of India-made telecom equipments.
