The Stichting Industriële Reiniging offers affiliated companies the possibility to acquire a ratification as a SIR testing company. The affiliated companies can submit a relevant application to the SIR. As soon as the SIR has received the application, the SIR representative will visit the company and assesses whether it fulfils the SIR requirements for testing company. If this is the case, the company will be issued a ratification which is valid for one year. Audits take place every year in order to assess whether the company still complies.

As from 2010 the ratification covers pumps, emergency stops, pipes and circulation containers as well as hoses with couplings.
For companies that qualify, the SIR grants its approval for them to inspect and test industrial cleaning equipment in accordance with the SIR guidelines, after which these companies are allowed to issue recognised certificates for the Benelux. The SIR supplies approval stickers for objects that the companies have tested and approved in accordance with the SIR requirements. Only SIR approved testing companies can receive the approval stickers.
Another aim of the testing companies is to ensure uniformity concerning the appearance of equipment certificates. This is beneficial for acceptance and provides easy clarity for clients. The SIR certificate from the handbook for Chemical Technical Cleaning serves as a basis in this context.
A single approval is issued per workstation for the inspection and certification of chemical technical cleaning equipment. It is not possible to acquire an approval for more workstations on one name.
The price for inspection per workstation is € 283.50 ex VAT as of 1 January 2021.
