Agency Approvals and Certifications

A doorway leading to competitive and safety-critical industries

Agency Approval

Safety standards for dynamic industries continuously evolve to meet the current demands, making it necessary to keep the certifications up-to-date. Powersoft19 SQA offers a comprehensive plan to make certification achievement and updating easier for you. This plan will be a doorway for you to become a key player in competitive and safety-critical industries.

As a part of this plan, we provide you expert consultancy about the best suitable agency standard(s) for your products. Then we help you produce the relevant data, audit reports, product documentation, and other artifacts required for these standards. Having experience of working as an ‘independent verifier and validator’ ‘, we can take care of all the communication, and respond to the objections raised by the concerned agency during the process. After the product certification, we offer complete support and consultancy in case of any modification in product design or a change in the standard requirements.

We have an excellent track record in achieving agency approvals for industrial products from European and American safety agencies ranging from safety integrity level SIL 1 to SIL 3. We have been working with world’s top 3 safety agencies. Some notable standards that we worked on include EN 50128, IEC 61508, EN 50126, EN 50402, EN 13849, and EN 50271.
