As a NETA Accredited Company, CBS Field Services uses the ANSI/NETA 2021 ATS Standard for Acceptance Testing Specifications for Electrical Power Equipment and Systems as a guide to ensure accurate, unbiased testing and reporting to protect the owner’s interest — often by working in conjunction with the equipment manufacturer and/or electrical contractor.
CBS Field Services provides acceptance testing for new electrical power equipment and systems at new and existing facilities. Our field tests and inspections ensure that your electrical apparatus and systems perform satisfactorily, minimizing downtime and maximizing life expectancy and safety.
Acceptance testing and commissioning services are often required on construction projects where the highest degree of reliability is necessary due to the critical nature of the facility. If your electrical construction project requires field quality control, CBS Field Services is available as a resource. See what types of electrical equipment require acceptance testing.

Acceptance testing by CBS Field Services ensures that all stakeholders have done their part to deliver a product that will perform safely and reliably for many years to come. This includes the following:
