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 (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.
