What do we test and certify?

FORCE Technology performs qualification and verification testing of:

  • LAN data cables
  • Connecting hardware

  • Cables and connectors for use with Power over Ethernet (PoE).

Examples of tests:

  • Pull test (elongation test)
  • RJ45 stress test (not for EC-verified)
  • Transmission test (test fixture with 2 or 4 ports).

EC VERIFIED certification programme for LAN data cables, cords and connecting hardware

World-wide quality assurance 

EC VERIFIED is a certification programme for components and cabling for local area and coaxial networks. It is the ultimate independent mark for global approval of cables and connecting hardware.

Network installers, network integrators, and manufacturers of cables and connectors have, since 1987, relied on the EC VERIFIED stamp of quality and benefitted from its high marketing value in the global cabling market.

The programme consists of:

A stamp of approval

After successful certification, you receive: 

At the conclusion of an audit, you receive an audit report.

The EC VERIFIED stamp guarantees that the products approved by FORCE Technology, as an accredited independent testing laboratory, have been tested

  • to the applicable international standards 
  • in the most exact way
  • under rigorous control 
  • with regular inspection of the manufacturer’s production quality.

Conformity test – an alternative to EC VERIFIED

If you do not want a full EC VERIFIED qualification testing as described above, we offer one-time conformity test of your products according to your specific needs. Examples are test of screening efficiency of cables or connectors, or test of HF transmission characteristics for cables. 

If compliance to the relevant standards is verified, we issue an Attestation of Conformity.
