LOVAG Testing

The Low Voltage Agreement Group stands for high competence in testing and certification of low voltage industrial equipment.

Testing for LOVAG Certification is consequently following the requirements of the IEC-  and EN-Standards for low voltage industrial equipment.

LOVAG Test Instructions (LTI) are developed by experts and approved by the LOVAG Technical Committee in order to harmonize all testing of the LOVAG registered Laboratories. The results have to be reported on LOVAG Test Report Forms (TRF), strictly compliant with EN and IEC standards, approved by the LOVAG Technical Committee.

Consequently, the manufacturer can give evidence to the customer about the quality of his product and the authorities can rely on the LOVAG Certificates. The TRFs are continuously updated according to the current edition of the standards.

 
 

LOVAG Certification


Testing for LOVAG Certification have to be performed in LOVAG registered Laboratories which may be:  

  • Independent third party laboratories
  • Manufactures laboratories under the supervision of a LOVAG Observer (SMT)
  • Manufacturers laboratory witnessed by a LOVAG Certification Body using a 
    LOVAG Technical Witnesser (WMT)

LOVAG registered Laboratories


All LOVAG registered Laboratories must fully comply with all the requirements of LOVAG
