Check Testing Programme - Supplier Panel of Accredited Laboratories

EECA’s Product Check Testing Programme tests whether manufacturers are meeting their obligations with the Energy Efficiency (Energy Using Products) 2002 Regulations. The purpose is to ensure that poor performing and/or sub-standard products are detected and removed from the market—and only products that comply with the regulations are available to consumers.
