Safety Approvals

NFPA Certification

NFPA stands for the National Fire Protection Association for the USA which provides many standards for the design of electrical, flammable materials, ventilation, building systems and equipment. These standards are the basis of safety for industrial equipment, specifically NFPA 79, that is used throughout the USA. Allow us to help you generate conformity to these and CE marking standards while at the same time to achieve wide acceptance of your equipment. Contact us to support you in conforming to NFPA standards or for more information check out our YouTube Channel.

NFPA certification requires compliance with specific standards, which we can help you determine.
