Finding out testing regulations and requirements


I am looking for advice as to the best way to ascertain information on different countries testing regulations and requirements. This is mainly in relation to gas and electrical products but also outdoor heating. We are looking at working directly supplying products to many different countries but I would like to make sure that we are completing all due diligence. If there are good ways to find out this information without paying a high fee, I would welcome hearing these. Thank you for your help.


Hi there,

I hope you get an answer to your question shortly.

In the meantime, I recommend also looking at the Institute of Export and International Trade’s helpdesk for more specific advice:

Hi there,

There are 2 or 3 main providers of testing that an overseas country will accept. They generally service different countries as they have a relationship with the government to provide the service.  Try SGS and Intertek.

Best of luck and come back to us if you require any further help or documentation for export.
