Aplicaciones Tecnológicas S.A. once again obtains the ISO 9001 Certificate, thus ratifying its commitment to the professionalism, excellence and quality of its products. The commitment to the continuous improvement through the processes of design, production, marketing, installation and review processes of lightning protection systems, as well as in its divisions of storm detectors and exothermic welding, again endorse its quality certificate.
Between 18th and 22nd November the group meetings of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) took place in Milan (Italy). These are responsible for the review of the international regulation of lightning protection IEC 62305. This regulation review was performed for its four parts (General Principles, Risk management, Physical Damage to Structures and Life hazards, Electrical and Electronic Systems in Structures). In addition, a general assembly of IEC Group 81 (Lightning Protection) was held.
A new international regulation, IEC 63052:2019, was published Last August 2019. It regulates the quality, safety and electromagnetic compatibility requirements for protectors against permanent or temporary overvoltages, also known by their acronym POP (Power Overvoltage Protectors).

Hospitals, retirement homes, research centers, laboratories, etc., are key infrastructures that must be protected against the risks caused by electrical storms. Buildings in which there is a high concentration of people, high-cost equipment and even patients connected to electrical systems that cannot suffer cuts or alterations in the electricity supply, require a comprehensive lightning protection system with the maximum guarantees of safety and quality.
