Testing &
certification for

Step stools

We provide step stool testing to EN 14183 for manufacturers, importers and Regulators. From testing a single clause to a full review, we can help. 

Our T&RGETMARK Certification Mark could help if you are looking for Certification. The requirements are based on a Ladder Association certification scheme, which we manage on their behalf.  

Our T&RGETMARK helps step stool manufacturers show to their clients and end users that the product conforms to standards.
