HOME ＞ Introducing JECTEC
JECTEC has been active in the field of research and development, while expanding its activity in evaluation, conformity assessment, and information services concerning electric wires and cables.
A notable change in recent activities is the remarkable extension of its conformity assessment testing work. JECTEC is gradually evolving into a qualified inspection body from an R&D laboratory.
JECTEC continues to enhance the technology and quality of wires and cables as a third party testing institution and a certification body.
