Curtis-Straus LLC, an electronics safety testing and certification laboratory, announced that is providing testing and test reports for marine electronics as required by expert bodies in ship classification.  Curtis-Straus (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services) as an A2LA accredited Nationally Recognized Test Laboratory, offers testing for EMC, Environmental and Safety certification at its Littleton, Massachusetts laboratory. 
   
For the purposes of Type Approval, several members of the International Association of Classification Societies (IACS, Ltd.) can accept testing results in accordance with the relevant marine testing standards from Curtis-Straus LLC; in most cases without the need for a Surveyor to witness the testing.
