CSA Group, a global leader in Testing, Inspection and Certification, has announced the opening of a new Lighting Center of Excellence in Irvine, California. The new, state-of-the-art facility will centralize and enhance CSA Group’s lighting evaluation services, directly addressing a need by manufacturers looking for a more streamlined testing, inspection and certification process and faster turnaround times.

Through the new Lighting Center of Excellence, CSA Group will provide a comprehensive set of services including OSHA NRTL (Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory) certification services; energy performance testing, including LM-79; photobiological testing; photometric testing, including horticultural; and acoustic testing, among others.

“Faced with an increasingly competitive marketplace and ongoing supply chain challenges, North American lighting manufacturers are looking for a testing, inspection and certification provider who not only helps them navigate the certification scheme requirements of products, but who understands their need to get products to market quickly,” says KC Fletcher, Lighting Center of Excellence Manager. “Establishing our Lighting Center of Excellence in Southern California, in close proximity to many of our customers, will help us strengthen the customer experience.”

CSA Group is at the forefront of advances in lighting testing, especially in the horticultural lighting industry. The new Lighting Center of Excellence will strengthen CSA Group’s lighting evaluation capabilities for markets across the globe including certification services for Canada and Europe. The new Lighting Center of Excellence is accredited and recognized to test and certify to various local and international standards.
