Standards Institution of Israel to work with TUV Rheinland
Both parties hope for major synergies to emerge from these activities for the Israeli market and international pro-jects, centred, for instance on renewable sources of energy.
Through the cooperation with SII, as a highly esteemed partner in Israel, we are able to expand our range of Market Access services to serve another important country. This, in turn, is sure to benefit our globally oriented customers particularly those from North America, Asia and Europe, said TÜV Rheinlands Executive Vice President Products and Systems Ralf Wilde.
