SATRA Technology

SATRA is an independent research and testing organisation established in the UK in 1919. It has technical facilities in Europe and China serving customers throughout the world. As well as testing products and components to European and international standards across a wide range of industry sectors, SATRA develops, manufactures and sells test equipment. SATRA is a Notified Body for various European regulations including personal protection equipment (PPE), which is one of SATRA’s largest sector operations. SATRA has its own chemicals analysis laboratory for testing restricted substances in accordance with European REACH, and US chemicals regulations for which it is CPSC-accredited.

SATRA can test PPE against European, international and national standards and, as a Notified Body, can certify PPE for the CE Mark. There are two SATRA Notified Bodies – one in the UK and another in the Irish Republic, with a team of experts on hand to help customers through the process of the testing and type-examination according to the requirements of the PPE Regulation. SATRA is also able to carry out module C2 checks on samples from bulk production as specified in PPE Regulation or module D quality management system audits in the manufacturing facility.

SATRA is considered a leading technical authority for footwear and leather. Companies from these industries can become members of SATRA to gain exclusive access to SATRA test methods, accreditation, consultancy, research facilities, technical training and factory production management systems. SATRA systems are recognised in the supply chain as setting industry standards for quality and production efficiency.
