Element Materials Technology helps companies achieve compliance against global safety standards for 167 countries. 

Element is the ideal partner to help electrical device manufacturers, importers and distributors to obtain the safety testing and certification needed to trade their products worldwide. 

We work with manufacturers, importers, distributors and authorised representatives of electrical devices for medical, defense, household and industrial products from the early design stage by offering our Early Stage Qualification (ESQ®) service which considers the complex nature of taking an electrical product to a global market. Element helps companies design products that take into account the many different safety requirements from different countries. Our ESQ expertise from testing thousands of different products every year, and our industry leading certification and approvals experience, provides manufacturers with the ability to remove both cost and risk out of the design process. 

Element is UKAS accredited to BS EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005, a Notified Body for a number of the key European Directives (Low Voltage, Machinery, EMC, R&TTE and ATEX Directives) as well as a National Certification Body (NCB) and Certification Body Test Laboratory (CBTL) under the IECEE CB Scheme. We are also able to offer a huge range of testing and certification services that help our clients gain easy access to international markets. 

The most common routes are:

  • CE Marking


  • IECEx 

  • MET (US safety mark) 

This makes Element a great choice of testing partner for companies with electrical products wishing to gain access to markets around the globe. 

Our expertise in safety testing and certification helps the whole supply chain to import and export products to 167 countries throughout the world. Most commonly our clients look to qualify their products for CE Marking within Europe and the IECEE CB Scheme for the most popular developed countries to export their products to.
