Kitemark certification for EV/ smart EV chargers
Kitemark certification and testing of electric vehicle charging systems support market differentiation in a rapidly expanding market.
BSI’s robust EV charger testing program assesses EV charger safety against risk criteria such as electric shock, fire, overheating, safety in operation, and mechanical hazards. In addition, the certification confirms that the EV charger has been designed to ensure that water and dust can’t get into the product, likely assuring the durability and lifespan of the product.
The smart charger scheme has additional requirements to the product standard, including requirements for smart charge regulations as well as cybersecurity standards. This additional testing will help you to demonstrate compliance with UK regulations, in addition to EU cyber security 2024 requirements.
To achieve the Kitemark clients will undergo type testing, factory assessments, and certification of ongoing activities.
Kitemark for electric vehicle charger customers often experience:
- market differentiation and competitive advantage
- increased tender opportunities
- scale acceptance of quality, safety, and reliability
- smart EV charger security assurance.
