Any electrical equipment installed in the United States or Canada requires a site inspection in accordance to the National Electrical Code (NEC) and the Canadian Electrical Code.

If factory installed internal wiring or the construction of equipment has been listed by a qualified electrical testing laboratory (NRTL), such as TÜV SÜD, it is not required to be inspected at the time of installation according to Article 90.7 of the NEC.

Acceptance of Client's Testing (ACT)

Authorizing a manufacturers facility and staff to perform product safety testing.

Acceptance of Client's Testing (ACT), is a unique program in which TÜV SÜD America authorizes a manufacturers facility and staff to perform product safety testing. Test results are then reviewed and approved by TÜV SÜD engineers, allowing proper certification to be applied to the product. This entire process helps organizations drastically reduce their overall product compliance costs while simultaneously accelerating the compliance process by eliminating duplicate testing schemes.

To participate in the TÜV SÜD ACT program, a manufacturer must meet 2 basic requirements:

  1. A manufacturer must possess and maintain the capabilities to test their products to relevant safety standards.
  2. A Manufacturer must pass a TÜV SÜD Product Service on-site audit of their capabilities, supporting documentation and technical staff. The ACT audit is based on EN 45001 (General Criteria for the Operation of Testing Laboratories) and ISO/EN 17025 (Guide 25).

Alternatively, ISO 9001 registration (with emphasis placed on the requirements of EN 45001 and ISO/EN 17025) can demonstrate competence to meet the ACT requirements. Approved internal programs from UL (Underwriters Laboratories) or CSA (Canadian Standards Association) can also prove compliance.
