“I wish to assure you that it is very much business as usual”, says Austin Simmons, Chief Executive, SATRA. “We are fully committed to continuing our work as a Notified Body and have been taking actions to ensure that this is achieved. Clients need have no concerns about continuing to use SATRA for certifying products to the EU PPE and Construction Products legislation”, he added.
