Due to the complexity and the large number of tests and domains in which we operate, we offer you three different search options to give you an idea of our extensive testing capabilities. You can either type in a standard reference, click on one of the main testing areas in which we are active or browse trough our plastics testing ABC.

If you should not find what you are looking for, don’t hesitate to contact us. After all, this extensive list turns incomplete as standards and markets evolve. Moreover we can probably adapt our equipment to suit your needs. In any case, we will be happy to work with you on a test program tailored to your needs.

For any inquiry, please contact us.

Search by standard:

A test is always performed according to a certain technical regulation. Often this is an (inter)national standard. When it comes to standardization, we need to distinguish between product standards and test standards. A product standard is a set of specifications that a product must comply with. While a test standard describes the equipment and methodology to perform a certain test.
Becetel® is an accredited test lab for a large number of these test standards.
The easiest way to find a standard or technical regulation is to type in the number below (without EN, ISO etc).

The search function indicates whether a test standard is accredited or not. The full list of our scope of accredited tests can be found on our download page.
