TOTO USA has decided to enlist the services of IAPMO EGS (Electrical, Gas and Solar), The IAPMO Group’s testing and certification division for electrical products, in certifying its products for the United States and Canadian markets.
TOTO, IAPMO EGS’ first customer, has most recently successfully obtained listings for its Washlet and Neorest family of products.
“The EGS mark of conformity validates that the end product safety requirements for a given standard are complied with,” said Fernando Fernandez, director of codes and standards for TOTO.
IAPMO EGS is accredited as a certification body by the Standards Council of Canada and recognized by OSHA as a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory, which means that electrical products labeled with the IAPMO EGS certification mark meet the criteria necessary for acceptance by authorities having jurisdiction throughout the United States and Canada.
IAPMO EGS is also accredited by ANAB to test to more than 30 electrical, mechanical, plumbing, and EPA ENERGY STAR standards covering pool and spa equipment, bathtub equipment, irrigation equipment, electric faucets and bidets, personal hygiene and health care appliances, and suction fittings.
