Raman Spectrometer Certifications

Tornado Spectral Systems is a manufacturer of class-leading Raman spectrometers and accessories, which exceed the highest levels of certification by various governing bodies.


ISO 9001:2015

ISO 9001:2015
Acquiring ISO 9001:2015 reinforces Tornado’s commitment to exceeding quality expectations and requirements of its customers. ISO 9001 is the internationally recognized standard for a quality management system (QMS) and enables companies to operate proactively on several management principles, including the focus on customer requirements, efficient communication, and continuous improvement. ISO 9001:2015 specifies requirements for a quality management system when an organization:

  • needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements, and
  • aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.

All the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 are generic and are intended to be applicable to any organization, regardless of its type or size, or the products and services it provides. Read more about our ISO 9001:2015 certification here.


IECEx is the IEC System for Certification to Standards Relating to Equipment for Use in Explosive Atmospheres. It uses quality assessment specifications that are based on International Standards prepared by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). ATEX certification ensures that equipment will work safely in explosive environment without causing any accident if used as per the manufacturer’s recommendations. Equipment used in explosive atmosphere within the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA) must be ATEX certified. The OPIS 35™ regulates the HyperFlux™ PRO Plus laser output to guarantee that no greater than 35mW of laser power can enter the hazardous location. In accordance with Class 3B laser regulation, the OPIS 35 provides ATEX/IECEx certified signalling to facilitate remote emergency laser shutdown and laser status indication.


Additionally, our spectrometer systems meet TÜV SÜD certification marks and represent third-party endorsement by a globally renowned organisation. It is a mark of distinction that enhances the value of our brand and inspiring greater confidence among our business partners and end users. Around the world, the TÜV SÜD logo is widely recognised and respected as a trusted symbol of quality, safety and sustainability. Most products entering the Canadian market must meet specific requirements depending on the scope of the product. Testing and certification must also be conducted by a testing and certification body accredited by Standards Council of Canada where applicable.
