FAREHAM, U.K. -- As part of an ongoing development programme geared to enhancing its market leading position, BABT has increased its compliance test capacity for the cellular marketplace, reducing time to market for GSM and Handheld Device manufacturers. Now with extensive GSM and EMC testing facilities at Maplewood in Basingstoke, BABT has added substantially to its capacity for performing GSM/GPRS 900/1800/1900MHz testing. The Maplewood facility includes a variety of equipment from Anite, Orga and Rohde & Schwarz together with a state of the art EMC test facility covering many non GSM/GPRS industry sectors as well as mobile devices. This facility complements its EMC facility in Bearley and GSM/GPRS/3G, EMC, Environmental and Safety facility in Fareham.

The test facility will operate under BABT management, including maintenance of quality systems and coordination with BABT Notified Body in Hersham when certification is required. The Maplewood facility benefits from UKAS Accreditation (No 0141 Group) as well as FCC and Industry Canada listing for the North American marketplace.

With testing being carried out under BABT’s accreditation, client confidentiality and integrity are assured. BABT project engineers will continue to manage all testing within a compliance programme, whether performed at Maplewood or at BABT’s laboratory in Fareham. BABT will also look to enhance the scope of accreditation of the Maplewood test facility to extend its capability for providing testing services, for example to PTCRB requirements.
