Following initial communication with local fire rated cable manufacturers in accordance with the DIN 4102-12 standard, Efectis Era Avrasya applied to VDE Prüf und Zertifizierungsinstitut GmbH (VDE) to become an approved test laboratory for fire resistance tests. For this purpose Efectis invited relevant VDE personnel for an audit programme on 18 January 2016 to verify that the Efectis laboratory is in conformity with DIN 4102-12. On the day after the audit programme, which proceeded successfully, Efectis was invited to take part in the seminar programme that VDE organised for local cable manufacturers in the context of new CPR directive in Turkey. Efectis was given time during the presentation to inform the participants about the company, its services and the opportunities for collaboration with VDE. During the seminar, Efectis responded to cable manufacturers’ inquiries and informed participants that, after the VDE approval procedure, Efectis would schedule test programmes in accordance with the relevant standards, starting in the first quarter of 2016. At the end of seminar Efectis, VDE and the participants agreed that this partnership would be beneficial to the cable sector in Turkey as well as the Middle East and Central Asia regions.
