Ensuring the safety, availability and cost effectiveness of building systems via MEP certification enables designers, installers as well as building owners and operators to offer competitive and attractive products in the real estate market.
In order to meet the expectations of owners and occupants, the mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) systems within buildings are required to function at maximum efficiency. Maximising the performance of MEP systems requires specialised technical and engineering expertise and advanced electrical system testing techniques. This is where TÜV SÜD can help.
WHAT ARE MECHANICAL, ELECTRICAL AND PLUMBING (MEP) SYSTEMS INSPECTION, TESTING, AND CERTIFICATION SERVICES?
The inspection, testing and certification of Mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) systems refers to the processes that ensure a building’s MEP infrastructure is operating efficiently.
MEP systems require expert implementation and regular inspections to ensure that they run smoothly and efficiently. In addition, these measures are necessary to achieve compliance with the various safety and quality requirements of national and international standards and regulations which all contribute to receiving MEP certification.
MEP certification also provides confirmation of quality. Finally, optimising your MEP installations makes good business sense as it saves on costs, reduces liability risks and ensures the reliability of your systems.
