TÜV SÜD Product Service launches new European battery safety testing service

TÜV SÜD Product Service has launched a new European battery testing service, offered from the UK and France, to help manufacturers, importers and retailers demonstrate that their batteries meet quality, performance and safety requirements.

With an increasing number of safety incidents, such as batteries catching fire in electronic devices and smouldering aboard airplanes, battery safety and performance is becoming ever more critical.  TÜV SÜD's new service will help customers in Western Europe to optimise development time and maximise access to global markets by providing a full range of tests, which cover life cycle, performance, abuse, environmental, durability and transportation.

Jean-Louis Evans, Managing Director of TÜV SÜD Product Service, said: "There are thousands of battery types on the market today. We can support the battery selection process by proving their safety and performance, while meeting international safety standards and regulations, to help our customers maximise the durability, quality and market appeal of their products across the world."

TÜV SÜD can offer support across the entire spectrum of battery cells, modules and packs, both rechargeable and non-rechargeable. Tests include:
  • Life cycle testing - to verify battery life and demonstrate the quality of the product.
  • Performance testing - to demonstrate battery efficiency.
  • Abuse testing - to simulate extreme conditions and scenarios to which a battery might be subjected.
  • Environmental & durability testing -including vibration, shock, EMC, humidity and altitude tests.
  • Transport testing - to ensure that batteries can be transported safely, including the United Nations UN38.3 requirements for the safe transportation of lithium ion batteries.
