hpivs-CEI Alliance for Post-Brexit Certification
HPi-CEproof is pleased to reveal its very exciting post-Brexit plans for continuing inspection & certification work: the hpivs- CEI Alliance
HPi-CEproof (Ireland) Ltd. was registered in Ireland, an EU Member State, before the UK’s referendum on leaving the EU, back in June 2016. HPi-CEproof is proud to announce that it has formed an alliance with Compliance Engineering Ireland Ltd, also a Approved Body for EMC & RED Directives. The companies now share offices in CEI’s laboratory facility in Co. Meath, just north of Dublin from where full product safety testing services and Approved Body services are provided for the following UK Regulations:
- Recreational Craft Regulations (RCR)
- Pressure Equipment (Safety) Regulations (PER)
- Simple Pressure Vessels (Safety) Regulations (SPV)
- Machinery Directive
- ElectroMagnetic Compatibility Directive (EMCD)
- Low Voltage Directive (LVD)
- Radio Equipment Directive (RED)
HPi-CEproof Ireland (CRO # 577786) will start issuing certificates in mid-2018. This means that, for a period yet to be agreed between UK and EU, HPi-CEproof will have two approvals as a Approved Body, with exactly the same scope of supply. The UK Approved Body will continue for as long as the ultimate UK-EU Brexit agreement allows. Thereafter, the current UK certificates & files will simply be transferred to the Irish company with no charge or delay to customers.
So not only will HPi-CEproof be carrying on work post Brexit, but the array of possible services is greatly increased owing to the hpivs- CEI Alliance.
