Stuart Beck has been involved with regulatory compliance for over 20 years. As the Director of Certification at Nemko Canada Inc., he is the Quality Manager while also responsible for operational management of the accredited certification and inspection bodies. Nemko Canada Inc. is a member of the Nemko group of companies that specialize in providing testing, inspection and certification services for global market access.
A graduate of Loughborough University in England, Mr. Beck joined KTL (Hull) as a test engineer with specialization in digital communication. In 1996 he brought this experience and knowledge to Canada to assist KTL (Ottawa) in becoming the first accredited independent Canadian test laboratory to be able to perform measurements for the European market on Digital telecom equipment.
As Canada, through the APEC TEL Mutual Recognition Arrangement, furthered the opportunities for telecommunications equipment manufacturer’s to access world markets, Stuart established Canada’s first ISO Guide 65 accredited certification body recognized for certifying to Industry Canada’s and the United States Federal Communications Commission radio equipment regulations at what is now Nemko Canada Inc. As markets, regulations and technologies change, Mr. Beck has overseen the extension of these conformity assessment services to cover new markets and segments such as Taiwan for radio and telecommunications equipment and energy efficiency.
