INSPEC International Ltd is the world's leading independent organisation for the testing and certification of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), for inter-laboratory comparisons and for the design and supply of related laboratory test equipment.  Our scope of activities covers all types of PPE - from head to toe.

We have been in business in the United Kingdom since 1981 and in China since 2002. We provide our services and products to a wide range of clients - from the largest to the smallest - all around the world. We are a 'family firm' and currently employ about 40 staff, operating seven laboratories and offices in the UK, China, Taiwan and the Netherlands.

We offer testing to United Kingdom, European, American, Canadian and Australian PPE standards; UKCA, UKNI and CE marking for PPE and certification of Quality Management Systems to ISO 9001.  We also operate an accredited product certification programme for PPE, the IC Mark.

In cooperation with the Safety Equipment Institute (SEI) in the USA, we also provide PPE testing and certification programmes for product access to the North American market - supporting these schemes globally.

Our certification services are accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS), Raad van Accreditatie (RvA), and our testing and inter-laboratory comparison services are accredited by ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB).

We like to think of ourselves as 'one-stop-shop' for all of the needs of PPE manufacturers worldwide.
