Early Stage Qualification (ESQ®)

Early Stage Qualification (ESQ®) saves our clients money.

Our ESQ programme works with products for which our clients are looking to gain qualification or take to a global market, by reducing the time and frequency of testing prior to compliance.

TRaC can offer strategic guidance based on our unparalleled expertise in testing and compliance as an alternative to loading the backend of the qualification and certification process, where compliance and deadlines are at risk. Working in collaboration with design teams from the very conception of a product, we build in the attributes that steer projects away from avoidable testing, compliance and approval pitfalls ensuring you pass first time and on time, while also reducing your overall testing costs.

We have leading experts in electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), vibration & shock, radio, safety, telecommunications, global certification and approvals with experience of bringing thousands of products successfully through this process. Each expert is able to support companies with the design and testing process culminating in final testing at any of our eight international sites, six of which are in the UK. This means you do not have to fear penalties for missing deadlines, losing sales or market share due to late entry to market through delays in testing or compliance.

Our ESQ services are ideal for prime manufacturers at the end of an extended supply chain, manufacturers of complex sub-systems, and companies looking to export products to a global audience. Most commonly our ESQ clients originate from:

  • Aerospace
  • Defence
  • Electrical products
  • Automotive
  • Rail
  • Oil, gas and petrochemical
  • Medical
  • Marine
  • Power generation
