Intertek Launches Horticultural Lighting Certification Program

Intertek, a major Total Quality Assurance provider to industries worldwide, announces the launch of its certification program for lighting products, including LED luminaires, used in horticultural or agricultural applications. The Horticultural Lighting Certification Program, which is the first of its kind in the industry, will leverage the Company’s lighting expertise to help manufacturers develop innovative, high-performance products for an emerging industry.

Horticultural luminaires, or grow lights, are installed in horticultural applications, either above or within the canopy. These products require additional safety and performance testing given the unique environmental conditions they are subjected to, such as high temperature, high humidity and elevated corrosive elements. However, in the United States, there are currently no safety and performance standards specific to horticultural lighting.
 
Intertek’s program incorporates current requirements for general lighting and takes into consideration requirements still in development. As part of a consolidated service package, Intertek also recommends specific performance testing to accompany the safety analysis. As standards for horticultural applications are established, they will be integrated into the program. 
 
“Intertek is pleased to continue our tradition of bringing innovative solutions to manufacturers and facilities around the world with this new program,” said Carl Bloomfield, Intertek Global Business Line Leader for Lighting.
 
“The Horticultural Lighting Certification Program, as well as our leadership in standard development committees, positions Intertek as a trusted source for expertise and quality assurance for manufacturers looking to capture a share of the horticultural lighting market.”
 
Intertek offers a range of quality, performance, regulatory compliance, labelling, and advisory services for lighting products including lamps, luminaires, modules, smart lighting, arrays, and lighting controls.
