LPI Group Achieve Qualifoudre Certification to Support French Expansion

Qualifoudre Certification LPI Group

LPI Group, one of Europe’s leading specialists in the design, supply, installation, testing and maintenance of lightning, earthing and surge protection systems has received Qualifoudre certification.

Issued by the French National Institute for Industrial Environment and Risks (INERIS), the Qualifoudre certification ensures through an independent assessment that we comply with the requirements specified by the reference system, reliably implement a quality management system, respect the certification requirements, and apply the ministerial orders and standards in force.

The Qualifoudre certification will beneficially support LPI Group’s expansion in France, where we are already currently engaged on a number of high-profile data centre projects. This certification concerns the following areas: risk analysis, evaluation of risk components, technical studies and internal protection.

The lightning risk analysis defines the level of risk linked to the impact of lightning near or directly on a building or infrastructure. This analysis can be completed by a study defining the protections to be implemented to reduce this risk to an acceptable level. Qualifoudre certification is mandatory for ICPEs (Installations Classified for Environmental Protection) subject to Authorisation (A) and SEVESO (AS) by ministerial decree.

In addition, certification is recommended for all those who wish to protect their installations in the civil and military fields against the risks of lightning (safety of people, data, equipment, etc.).

LPI Group CEO, Paudi Reidy, comments on the new certification;

“In the last year, LPI Group has substantially grown our footprint within the French market. Achieving the Qualifoudre certification enables us to offer extra assurance to our clients that our solutions are delivered to French standards and regulations. We are currently delivering major projects in Paris and Toulouse where the certification is a requirement, which enhances our positioning as leaders in lightning protection systems within this region”.

LPI Group look forward to developing business across France as we approach 2022 as Qualifoudre certified lightning protection specialists!

With the help of UL’s International Accreditation Service (IAS), LPI Group will be able to reassure clients all over the world that their building structure, equipment, and human life within the vicinity of their premises are safe from the damaging effects of lightning strikes by installing a secure UL-certified lightning protection system.

“Paudi Reidy, LPI Group CEO comments on the accomplishment saying, “We are very proud that LPI Group has achieved UL listing, allowing us to further build our reputation as the leading experts in lightning protection systems, earthing systems and surge protection devices internationally. The completion of the rigorous evaluation process was made possible by the dedication of our technical division, and I would like to thank UL for their engagement and support with our team throughout the process.”

“We are proud to support initiatives which enhance the quality of installed lightning protection systems around the globe through IAS accredited third party inspections says UL Field Business Engineer Christopher Carlson. We are excited to have LPI Group join the UL family of listed lightning protection contractors currently serving the regions of Sweden, Denmark, France, Switzerland, Germany, Netherlands, Finland, Ireland, UK, Spain, Italy, Belgium, and the United Arab Emirates. We look forward to working together towards a safer world.”
