Enhanced Battery Testing

New Equipment Expands Capabilities

Business Challenge

At some point, every retailer, manufacturer or importer of batteries is faced with questions regarding product quality and performance. Selecting a testing laboratory that can answer those concerns and meet your needs is key. One must consider key factors such as cost, turn-around time, and quality plus strike the right balance between them. It can also be challenging to get answers to such questions as: How do your batteries rate in comparison to those of your competitors? How do they differ? Is your “new and improved” battery truly improved? Or, perhaps you would like confirmation through third-party verification how your battery compares to others in the market?


How to best address your battery concerns?
Your choice of laboratory must be able to offer a full-range of battery testing and quality and performance criteria to meet your goals. It must also be capable of providing efficient service with good turn-around times. Bureau Veritas offers global battery testing in multiple locations in Europe, Asia and the Americas.
