ANCE was founded in 1992 by a group of entrepreneurs who wished to contribute towards the legitimacy and safety of products, and created a nonprofit private institution that would provide product certification services in support of the electric power sector.

With the purpose to meet the requirements of different sectors, we developed standards and regulations, widening our service scope in order to provide standardization and compliance assessment services to more industries.

We are leaders in Certification, Inspection, Verification, System Management, Laboratory Testing, and Training services, adding value to our clients business activities, working together towards ongoing improvement.
