HONG KONG, Jan. 16, 2012 /CNW/ - CSA, a leading testing and certification organization, today officially announces the grand opening of a new, state-of-the-art testing and certification laboratory in Hong Kong. Equipped with advanced technology, the new lab will provide significant localized testing capabilities for manufacturing clients including: lighting, household appliances, battery operated tools, transformers, wiring devices and other electrical products.

With its new local laboratory in place, CSA's long-term expertise in this arena will contribute to the healthy development of the industry while helping to strengthen the Hong Kong brand of quality worldwide.
Greater China remains a key priority market for CSA. One of the company's key business strategies includes accelerating investments in LED lighting, energy efficiency verification (EEV), solar and photovoltaic, and expanding its core services and businesses in the region.
