California Lab Approved as NRTL

Many OSHA standards require that an NRTL test and certify certain types of equipment as safe for use in workplaces. They are independent laboratories that meet OSHA's requirements for performing safety testing and certification of products.

OSHA announced April 6 that Bay Area Compliance Laboratories Corp.'s facility in Sunnyvale, Calif., has been granted recognition as a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory, effective on that date.

OSHA's online page on the NRTL Program is available here.

Many OSHA standards require that an NRTL test and certify certain types of equipment as safe for use in workplaces. They are independent laboratories that meet OSHA's requirements for performing safety testing and certification of products, and they must meet the requirements in the NRTL Program regulations at 29 CFR 1910.7. To be recognized by OSHA, an organization must: have the appropriate capability to test, evaluate, and approve products to ensure their safe use in the workplace; be completely independent of employers subject to the tested equipment requirements and manufacturers and vendors of products for which OSHA requires certification; have internal programs that ensure proper control of the testing and certification process; and have effective reporting and complaint handling procedures.

Bay Area Compliance Laboratories Corp. (BACL) was incorporated in 1996 to provide product compliance testing services to customers in product safety, electromagnetic compatibility and telecommunications, testing for emissions, immunity, radio, radio frequency exposure, and telecommunications, according to its application, and third-party accreditation body A2LA accredited BACL for UL 60950-1, the standard for which BACL requested NRTL recognition.

BACL's application listed its headquarters address as Bay Area Compliance Laboratories Corp., 1274 Anvilwood Ave., Sunnyvale, CA 94089.
