Growth at SATRA Technology Europe

SATRA Technology Europe has moved into larger offices at the same Bracetown address.

´╗┐SATRA Technology Europe – an Irish Notified Body based close to Dublin – has reported sustained growth in demand for its services certifying personal protective equipment (PPE) products for CE marking and sale in the European Union. During the past two years, the business has rapidly grown in capacity by introducing improved IT systems, and has more than doubled the number of PPE certification assessors working on EU type-approval certificates.

To accommodate anticipated further growth, SATRA Technology Europe has moved into larger offices at the same Bracetown Business Park address. This further investment means that SATRA is now very well placed to accept more certification assessment work and help companies comply with the new PPE Regulation (EU) 2016/425.

Following the new PPE Regulation’s introduction in April this year, many companies are re-certifying their PPE products in advance of the next key date in April 2019. SATRA Technology Europe’s general manager, Geoff Graham, said: “This is an exciting time of growth for the business. Being in Ireland – an EU 27 member state – means that the validity of certificates we issue will not be affected in any way by Brexit. We usually arrange testing of the PPE at SATRA’s ISO 17025-accredited testing laboratories in the UK, prior to certification assessment in Ireland.”

SATRA is helping many companies to project manage the transition of their existing portfolio of certificates over to the new Regulation.
