Six programs have already been conducted and received a positive response from the industry, resulting in more programs being planned this year.

Mr. Dilip Gianchandani, Regional Director Intertek said, “The interest generated by this program certainly shows that the industry has realized the need for standardization, which this program provides in the way of carrying out independent inspections. To facilitate many more such certifications, Intertek will be conducting this program much more frequently.”
