Located in central Europe – Slovenia, SIQ maintains its international recognition and strong professional reputation through numerous accreditations and memberships in international certification schemes, associations, and their status as a European Notified Body for various EU directives. SIQ also provides support to global partners in order to meet the demands of international markets.
As of August 2017, SIQ’s relocation to their new office is complete. The 9000 square meter facility houses both office space and over 5000 square meters of laboratory space. The new laboratories are among the largest and best-equipped of their kind within the European Union.
SIQ’s Safety & Electromagnetics department, as well as the Gaming Technologies department, have already hit the ground running at their new location. With more than half of the office space dedicated to their state-of-the-art laboratories for comprehensive quality testing of electrical products, SIQ is taking advantage of the new facility to provide advanced testing solutions.
Through their long-time partnership with MET, SIQ is able to provide effective access to North American certifications for gaming manufactures. SIQ is the only gaming laboratory in the world that offers its partners comprehensive solutions that include not only gaming services, but also electromagnetic compatibility & electrical safety testing of devices and assessments of management systems.
