Exporting gas products is impossible without the appropriate certification. Kiwa can help you avoid the complexity and cost of seeking compliance with a whole variety of national import requirements. Our gas safety laboratory has been recognized by the Dutch Accreditation Council as a Certification Body. This means our testing services can provide you with Gas Appliances certification.

If you wish to obtain access to global markets with your gas product and components, you can ask for a quotation or information either by phone or e-mail. We will set up a plan according to your requirements. After approval of the quotation by both parties the actual test work starts. A certificate will be sent to you when all the test work has been performed successfully and you have entered into a surveillance agreement with Kiwa.
