What is a NRTL Evaluation?

Third-party NRTL field evaluations include an onsite, non-destructive compliance assessment of your equipment. They can be leveraged for one-of-a-kind custom or prototype equipment not intended for mass production or equipment from Europe and Asia. When a piece of equipment does face a red-tag threat, Excel Engineering can be dispatched to your facility to address the issue.

How a NRTL Field Evaluation Works

  1. Excel Engineering sends an expert to evaluate the equipment in question for any risks related to shock, fire, or other electrical hazards, all while accounting for the surrounding environment and anyone who may come into direct contact with the electrical panel.
  2. If the evaluation finds the equipment complies with the referenced standards, the equipment is labeled, and a detailed report is issued to both the end user and the AHJ recommending that the equipment be allowed to be installed and operated.
  3. If the evaluation finds the equipment does NOT comply with the referenced standards, the report will explain each discrepancy. The information can be used as a roadmap for the end user as you determine the proper corrections needed for each discrepancy. 
  4. Once corrections are made, Excel Engineering will make another site visit to review the corrected electrical panel. During the follow-up evaluation, if all discrepancies are corrected, the evaluator will field label the equipment and issue the compliance report to the end user and the AHJ recommending that the equipment be allowed to be installed and operated.

It is essential to follow all the applicable standards for field evaluations and have a knowledgeable, properly licensed Professional Engineer to perform them. Excel Engineering specializes in providing onsite third-party assessment for our clients to help keep their facilities safe and compliant and their production moving forward.
