Marine Radio & Beacon Testing (Including Cospas-Sarsat)

Testing Service Equipment used in a marine environment has to comply with a range of technical specifications and standards to ensure that the equipment is safe and will withstand everything this environment throws at it. It also has to conform to legal obligations such as the Marine Equipment Directive for Europe and specific procurement requirements.

Typical Product Types:

TÜV Product Service specialises in marine radio and beacon testing, particularly the 406MHz beacons using the CospasSarsat satellite system. Accredited testing is performed at our superbly equipped laboratory in Fareham, UK, or can be performed at manufacturers’ premises if required.
