Update on FDT Certification

April 21, 2010

The FDT Group Certification Office delivered again many certificates over the past year. Year after year the number of companies with certified devices increases significantly. The counter is at this moment on 43 different companies delivering certified DTMs for their products. This is an increase of 30% regarding the same period last year. These 43 companies deliver in total over 2300 devices that come with a DTM!

The complete range of devices with certified DTMs can be found on the FDT Group Website. We encourage all end users to require certified products from their suppliers and to verify the certificates on our website.

“We strongly recommend the field device manufacturers to certify their new device DTMs at any case! We are convinced that this important part of the FDT quality process provides remarkable user benefits in terms of reliable and trouble free plant operation. In the future, BASF Nederland will prefer to purchase field devices with a certified DTM only,” states Ferry Stofberg, Automation Engineer at BASF, Meern, the Netherlands.
