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 now 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 four office locations.

We offer testing to European, American, Canadian and Australian PPE standards, CE marking to the European PPE Directive and PPE Regulation, Wheel marking to the European Marine Equipment Directive and certification of Quality Management Systems to ISO 9001. We also operate an accredited product certification programme for PPE, the IC Mark and are well on the way to offering an accredited certification service against ISO 14001, Environmental Management Systems.

In cooperation with the Safety Equipment Institute (SEI) in the USA, we also provide PPE testing and certification programmes for the North American market.

Our certification services are accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) and our testing and inter-laboratory comparison services are accredited by ANAB.

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