August 2002 saw the visit of Mr Ronan Marquestiau, MD of CEBEC Belgium to CBI, to hand over the Supervised Manufacturer Testing (SMT) certificate.
CEBEC is responsible for most of CBI’s IEC product certification. Up until the end of 2001, the testing was done in CBI’s Laboratory and witnessed by a CEBEC representative. With the introduction of the SMT process earlier this year, this has changed. Within the next 12 months CBI will be in the position to carry out certification tests without direct supervision from CEBEC.
