Attestation Research Department Certification Unit

The Attestation Research Department Certification Unit continues the more than thirty-five-year tradition of the KOMAG Institute of Mining Technology of conducting tests and assessing the safety level of machines and equipment. Initially, KOMAG specialised in certification testing of hoisting machinery. Over time, as the research base developed and the qualifications of the engineering staff improved, while the requirements for safety at work in underground mines increased, the range of equipment tested and assessed at KOMAG expanded.
