Becetel vzw

Belgian research centre for
pipes & fittings

Becetel stands for “Belgian Centre for technological research of pipes and fittings.” It was founded in 1957 at the University of Ghent with the aim to conduct studies and research associated with piping and accessories and is located today in Melle as an independent and accredited laboratory according to EN ISO/IEC 17025.



Our main service is our extended testing range and a combined experience of over a century in the testing of plastics. Apart from this we offer our know-how for technical expertise and advice for normalization committees.
We are ISO/IEC 17025 accredited by BELAC since 2002. The annual audit not only stimulates us to continuous improve our procedures and equipment but also to extent the test scope.
We are a recognised laboratory for many inspection and certification bodies (BCCA, Copro, Certigaz, DVGW CERT, Din-Certco, …) and have clients all over the world.
