SECOTA starts New Year with Comparison Test
December 2018 - SECOTA - Security, Equivalent, Certification, Organization, Testing and Auditing - has set itself the task of making testing and certification in Europe comparable and comprehensible to all communities of interest. Within just a few weeks, the international working group, consisting of 25 participants from 12 countries, has already developed and coordinated the first concepts for holistic comparative tests.
In the spring of 2019, the first SECOTA comparison test will take place with the six interested test laboratories. Overall, the comparison includes 35 partial tests on specimens of different materials, which are subsequently evaluated by the working group. The test specimens are provided by SECOTA.
Beginning of SECOTA Working Group
November 2018 - On the 19th of October 2018, the first official meeting of SECOTA took place in Frankfurt am Main.
The working group, made up of international representatives from all sectors of the physical security and insurance industry, has set itself the goal of making laboratories easier to compare in the future - through regular comparative tests. Here, test philosophies and processes should be harmonized, thereby creating a transparent industry platform for the continuous exchange of experience.
