Quality testing through independent Accredited Test Institutes

All certifications under the FIH Quality Programme for Hockey Turf are based on tests undertaken by our Accredited Test Institutes. This international network consists of independent organisations who have been accredited by FIH and assist in the ongoing quest for optimum field construction and equipment development for hockey.

All of the test institutes meet the international standards set by the FIH in regards to their competencies to perform specific tests, calibrations, measurements and inspections. They are evaluated on a regular basis to ensure that their operations and procedures remain in-line with FIH practices and requirements. It is required that each institute also has in-house quality systems to ensure that their output is correctly performed to the high-quality standards set out by the international hockey community.

FIH Accredited Test Institutes, therefore, provide reliable testing, calibration, measurement and inspection services for all FIH Quality Programme for Hockey Turf certifications.
