ISO Certification requires a quality management system where an organization demonstrates its ability to consistently provide products that meet customer and applicable regulatory requirements, and aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for continual improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable regulatory requirements.
ISO (International Organization for Standardization) is an independent, non-governmental membership organization and the world’s largest developer of voluntary international standards.
Certain carts that Spectrum has developed have been ETL Certified by Intertek to UL 60950-1 listing. This standard specifies requirements intended to reduce risks of fire, electric shock, or injury for the user who may use the equipment. It takes into account all the normal operating conditions of the equipment, but also looks at likely fault conditions, consequential faults, foreseeable misuse, and external influences such as temperature, altitude, pollution, and moisture. This standard also applies to components such as power supplies, power strips, and timers.
