Factory Acceptance Test (FAT), Site Acceptance Test (SAT) and Installation Qualification (IQ)


Factory Acceptance Test

A Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) is a process that evaluates any bespoke or customised equipment during and after the assembly process, by verifying that it is built and operating in accordance with design specifications.

Site Acceptance Test

A Site Acceptance Test (SAT) is a tool to determine the functionality of the equipment at site before installation.

Installation Qualification

Installation Qualification (IQ) is a documented process that ensures your facility and equipment provide what is required.

Examples of what may be included are:

  • Checking room sizes and room finishes
  • Checking floor colours in different graded areas
  • Checking presence of vision panels into rooms

IQ also includes the examination of equipment, to check it corresponds with documentation. We will perform a check, which is then verified by you to ensure both parties are confident that the key architectural and functional components of the system are present and satisfactory.
