SST Group proceeds with the international certification of our products. It is worth to mention that our self-regulating heating cables PREMIUM were certified for compliance with the EU ATEX Directive on product operation safety in explosive environments in December 2017.
We added another success story to our list in March 2018. SST Group self-regulating heating cables CLASSIC were recognized by the German Association for Electrical, Electronic and Information Technologies, which means that our products comply with the German requirements and regulations on product safety. In many European countries, including Germany, the VDE mark stands for electrical engineering quality and a guarantee of product quality.
During the complex procedure of intensive testing and preparation of the required documentation the tests were carried out at the VDE laboratory and OKB Gamma testing center under VDE’s control. Thermal performance was examined using a test unit in accordance with Clause 5.2.12 “Thermal performance test”, EN 62395-1 (DIN EN 62395).
“We are pleased to receive such a prestigious certificate. It demonstrates how committed SST Group is to continuously improving our products. The VDE certificate confirms that our self-regulating cables meet the international standards. It enables our company to operate in the markets of Germany and other European countries without restrictions”, comments Andrei Proshin, Director at OKB Gamma, the only Russian company to master full-cycle production of conductive plastics and self-regulating cables based on these materials.
At SST Group, we always put the quality and safety of our products first. Our companies have implemented and certified a quality management system in compliance with ISO 9001:2015 and GOST R ISO 9001-2015. SST Group self-regulating cable brands meet VDE, ATEX, IEC Ex, CE and RoHS international standards.
