Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) Testing

Fast and efficient NRCan compliance testing

Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) is Canada’s regulatory authority that sets standards for energy efficiency in industrial and consumer products.

It has established requirements for more than 50 separate categories of energy-using products manufactured, imported or sold in Canada. Suppliers of these products are required to prove their products comply with relevant regulations by having an independent certification body test their product against such standards.

Many energy-using products intended for sale or exportation to Canada must comply with NRCan energy efficiency levels. Failure to comply with the regulations enforced by NRCan is illegal.
