We are CTC Advanced

The major features of CTC advanced are testing and certification of electronic devices with most advanced telecommunication interfaces. CTC advanced GmbH is versed in worldwide approval procedures and applies them professionally for a quick and independent homologation of their customers’ devices – no matter what industry they belong to. Measurements of radio interfaces, electromagnetic compatibility as well as electrical safety in labs accredited according to ISO 17025 provide the essential fundament of certification.

In CTC advanced’s environmental simulation labs products are being tested to verify their robustness towards environmental impact. They are even subjected to destructive examinations, e.g. during safety tests of batteries.

CTC advanced’s labs for “payment & identification” test and certify devices for cashless payment transactions, like credit cards and card readers, as well as ATMs on the basis of versatile accreditations in the banking sector.

The line-up of products tested in CTC advanced’s accredited labs is broad and ranges from E-marking for subassemblies of vehicles to contactless credit cards and from hearing aids to MRI scanners.


20 years reliably by your side

Every now and then you realize how quickly time flies by. For 20 years we have already been your partner in consulting, testing and certification and for 1 year now under our own flag as CTC advanced GmbH.

To mark this occasion, we say thank you. Thank you for your loyalty and solidarity, for giving us the opportunity to walk this way as a company in Saarland already for a long time. We are entering the 21st year with many changes. We will increase in operation area by the construction of new buildings and at the same time our team is steadily growing. Not completely avoidable impairments during the construction phase will be kept as low as possible.

In the course of our increase in area, our service portfolio is also expanding rapidly so that we are able to support you and your innovations adequately.
Feel free to get in touch with us in case of any inquiry for measurements and approvals. We will be pleased to give you the best support possible.

Success is a journey, not a destination

In addition to you as our customer, our thanks are dedicated to our team of employees, who work hard to ensure a smooth process. The willingness to engage in continuing training and expansion of services are guarantors for a very good performance and further steady years in our company.

Even during times of change – as currently in the construction phase – CTC advanced provides the reliable and familiar service. With you by our side we are facing the pending challenges of the coming years with confidence. We are looking forward to going this path!
