IAPMO R&T Lab Recognized by Mexico’s ema

IAPMO R&T Lab, a long-trusted name in independent testing, research and technical services for the plumbing, mechanical and electro-plumbing industries, has been recognized by Mexico’s ema (entidad mexicana de acreditacion, A.C.) for testing of several categories of plumbing products. As a result, IAPMO R&T Lab may now test water closets, flushometer valves, fill and flush valves and showerheads for certification in Mexico.

EMA is the premiere non-governmental body in Mexico for the accreditation of conformity assessment bodies such as testing/calibration/clinical laboratories, inspection/certification bodies, proficiency testing providers and greenhouse gas emissions verifiers/validators.

“IAPMO R&T Lab sought this accreditation at the request of numerous manufacturers whose interest in securing comprehensive “one-stop” testing of their products led them to us,” said Ken Wijaya, senior director of IAPMO R&T Lab.

IAPMO R&T Lab is ACLASS accredited to ISO/IEC 17025 and is capable of testing to more than 400 standards and providing such special services as research and development, training, quality assurance, failure analysis and witness/field testing. In addition to Mexico, IAPMO R&T Lab offers one-stop testing for fast-track listing of products in the United States, Canadian and Australian markets.

With state-of-the-art testing facilities in Ontario, Calif., and Guangzhou, China, IAPMO R&T Lab is prepared to assist manufacturers worldwide in bringing their products quickly to market throughout North America.
