The Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH (DAkkS) has accredited Batteryuniversity as a test laboratory for batteries with effect from 26 January 2016.

The completed approval procedure certifies the company’s competence  to perform test series according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005 in compliance with the criteria of the UN manual 'UN ST/SG/AC.10/11/Rev. 5 and 6, part III, Section 38.3 Lithium metal and lithium ion batteries' (so-called UN transport test).  Batteryuniversity is one of the few German test labs that is allowed to use the listed standardized test methods based on the different dates of issue of the relevant standards without prior information or approval by DAkkS. The test reports are internationally recognized. The combined symbol of ilac-MRA and DAkkS on the test reports serves as evidence.

“Batteryuniversity's key competence is to support developers and users of batteries with the most different individual services in their daily work – a mission accomplished by a dozen highly qualified experts, in electrical engineering, chemists and physicists. These services include in-house trainings, technical analyses, expert opinions and the development of own test devices as well as the performance of standard based or customized test series in our own lab. We provide long-standing experience in testing batteries according to the statutory provisions for the most different safety, transportation and environmental concerns. The accreditation according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005 represents a further significant milestone on our way to one of the leading test laboratories for batteries in Europe,” said Dr. Jochen Mählss, CEO of Batteryuniversity GmbH.

For spring 2016 a further accreditation according to IEC/IECEE especially for the standards IEC 62133 (ed.2) and IEC 62281 is planned. Moreover, an extension of the offered services to peripheral components and devices, as for example development tests, endurance tests or application tests is planned.
