Accredited UV Lamp Measurement Laboratory
To our clients’ advantage, we run state-of-the art UV lamp measurement and testing laboratories in Europe and the US. Our laboratory competency ensures that the latest lamp technologies are fine-tuned to different types of sunbed OEM equipment and are measured accordingly. Through this service, we are able to supply optimal tanning lamp types and models to meet the many different global standards.
Our measuring and testing services are available to clients for all lamp types, whether they are individual or in equipment.
In 2010, our laboratory became accredited by the National Accreditation Body (NAT). Previously, it was accredited by DAR (German Accreditation Organization). Accreditation assures the laboratory is working according to best practices and adhering to all necessary standards.
Specific to Norway, all tanning lamps and all tanning units have to be registered at NRPA (Norwegian Radiation Protection Authority). Registration requires device measurement. LightTech’s laboratory in Hungary is one of the few whose measurements are accepted by NRPA.
Importance of Testing Tanning Equipment
Consumers demand confidence in the safety and quality of the products they use, and the environment they live in. It is also important for businesses and regulators to have reliance in the integrity and quality of the services supplied by laboratories. It is absolutely crucial that businesses feel that the testing is done with independence, competence, and impartiality. Accreditation bodies are those who guarantee this confidence.
You can apply for accreditation if you are working in one of the following areas:
- Laboratories (Testing & Calibration)
- Inspection bodies
- Certification bodies
