The facilities, equipment or materials used for improving the energy performance of buildings are subject to many tests to ensure that they comply with the standards or specifications in force.

Accreditation guarantees the reliability of the test results produced by laboratories. Certain certifications are also based on accredited tests.

The nonconformity of a product can lead to the expected energy performance being downgraded and have a direct impact on the results of insulation work, for example. Use of accredited tests makes it possible to reduce risk and, in this way, helps achieve greenhouse gas emission reduction targets.
