Press Releases

SGS, the leading provider of verification, inspection, testing and certification services, has announced its safety testing laboratory in Pasir Gudang, Malaysia has been accepted as a member of the IECEE CB Scheme.

The scope of the laboratory covers IEC 62133, IEC 62133-1 and IEC 62133-2 which concerns the safety requirements for portable sealed secondary nickel and lithium batteries.

Operated by the IEC System of Conformity Assessment for Electrotechnical Equipment and Components (IECEE), the IECEE CB Scheme is an international system for mutual acceptance of test reports and certificates. Participating countries and accepted National Certification Bodies (NCBs) worldwide cooperate to offer manufacturers a simplified way of obtaining multiple national safety certifications for their products — providing entry into over 50 countries.

Tom Törn, Certification Director, said: “The safety testing of such batteries has become increasingly important with the fast spread of products powered by such solutions. This approval from IECEE ensures we are best placed to serve (the region’s/those) nickel and lithium ion battery manufacturers seeking to safely and efficiently bring their products to global markets.”

IECEE CB Scheme membership means that SGS in Malaysia joins a global network of 12 CBTLs that operate under the supervision of the certification body SGS Fimko Ltd (Finland) which is entitled to publish CB Test Certificates based on CB Test Reports issued – among others – by SGS Malaysia.
