As of 17 April 2017, the Engineering Test Institute (SZU) was approved by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) both as an EPA-approved Test Lab and as an EPA-approved Third Party Certifier. The scope of our recognition applies to performing the tests of heating appliances burning solid (biomas) fuels as well as to subsequent certification of these appliances intended to be marketed in the USA. To related heating appliances within our scope of approval belong in particular the following product categories: Wood heaters, Residential Wood Heaters, New Hydronic Heaters, and Forced Air Furnaces.
The main role of SZU within this recognition lies, in principle, in conducting tests according to the related American standards and methodologies, and within subsequent evaluation (i.e. certification) of these tests, incl. performing the quality control audits at the manufacturer´s premises.
SZU has been recognized as one of the few non-American entities operating within the EPA.
