Certification Services

NTS has been in the product certification business for over 50 years. We operate a large network of formally accredited test laboratories, capable of providing official conformity assessment and certification services for a vast array of standards and requirements covering numerous different industries and product types. Our certification services cover everything from Product Safety to Wireless Certifications to Electromagnetic Compatibility to Functionality and Interoperability and numerous industry-specific requirements for products ranging from PC peripherals to hospital equipment and just about everything in between. Please browse this section of our website for more information about our specific Certification Services and please contact us directly if you do not find what you are looking for here.

The Importance of Certification

Achieving certification with the various regulatory bodies in your industry is about more than just bringing your product to market legally. It also ensures a minimum standard of quality and performance is met, which leads to better products and improved overall consumer confidence.

There’s also value to investing in certification services outside of your legal obligations. For example, civilian customers are increasingly becoming aware of what it means for a product to be certified to MIL-STD standards. Particularly with consumer goods such as cameras, cell phones and other equipment, MIL-STD certification conveys rugged, reliable performance in any situation. In a crowded marketplace, taking the time to achieve compliance with these or other standards can help you stand out from the competition.  

Compliance Testing Services for the Defense Industry

The defense industry remains one of our largest customer bases. Meeting the high standards to which military devices and equipment are held requires advanced testing facilities. NTS has the equipment and expertise necessary to demonstrate compliance with MIL-STD-810, MIL-SPEC-2105, FM 101-51-3 and other standards. Our Camden, Arkansas location is home to the National Ordinance and Ballistics Center, which provides live firings, climatic and dynamic testing, functional testing and compliance certification services for munitions, ordinance and hazardous materials.

Several additional NTS facilities offer certification for defense products. NTS Wichita is equipped to provide personal protective equipment and vehicle armor testing. NTS Rustburg (Virginia) can perform heavyweight shock and engineering for naval applications. Whatever your specific needs, we can help. Contact the NTS head office to discuss your testing requirements with one of our engineers.

Software and Hardware Certification

NTS can also provide hardware and software testing and compliance services. We have the largest network of Verizon ITL facilities for performing NEBS testing and international certification. We also maintain the only lab authorized to provide certification to Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA) 2.0 standards. Recently, NTS has upgraded its software testing capabilities — we can now provide everything from functionality and compatibility testing to localization services and more.

NTS has a long history of serving clients in a wide range of industries beyond those mentioned above. We can provide compliance seminars for aerospace, automotive, energy, telecom and other clients. Our facilities have been ISO/IEC 17025 accredited by the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA), which means we adhere to scalable, repeatable processes that deliver accurate results every time.
