Testing and certification body, Canadian Standards Association (CSA), has announced the opening of its new, state-of-the-art testing and certification laboratory in Hong Kong.

The facility is equipped with advanced technology and will provide significant localised testing capabilities for manufacturing clients including: lighting, household appliances, battery operated tools, transformers, wiring devices and other electrical products. Aside from the new Hong Kong laboratory, CSA has also opened laboratories in Shanghai and Guangzhou.

"CSA is committed to helping companies in the Greater China region succeed in the global marketplace," said Ash Sahi, president and CEO, CSA Group.

"The opening of CSA's new Hong Kong lab will provide our clients with testing and certification services for a wide range of products to meet various international standards for exports to North America and globally. We are determined to continue serving our valuable Hong Kong customers with the highest integrity and quality to help them achieve business success globally," Sahi added.

Located in Shatin, the new office and laboratory facility occupies 476.5 square meters (5,129 square feet). The new location provides qualified testing and certification services for Hong Kong's manufacturers locally, helping them reduce costs, time-to-market and improve product quality. The testing and certification industry has been identified as one of the new six economic pillars in which Hong Kong has enormous potential for development. With its new local laboratory in place, CSA's long-term expertise in this arena will contribute to the healthy development of the industry while helping to strengthen the Hong Kong brand of quality worldwide.

Greater China remains a key priority market for CSA. One of the company's key business strategies includes accelerating investments in LED lighting, energy efficiency verification (EEV), solar and photovoltaic, and expanding its core services and businesses in the region.

CSA's Hong Kong laboratory is staffed by a team of experienced testing professionals trained in relevant North American and international standards to best serve its customers, the company said.
