Company overview

For our members, Evaluation International is a trusted provider of cost-effective independent performance information and guidance on EC&I devices. We support engineering and purchasing decision making processes where safety is paramount, implementation costs are high or the cost of error/failure are significant.

With a library of more than 1,700 emphasis reports, market assessments and technical evaluations and an active programme of new projects, Evaluation International offers members access to a unique resource worth more than £40m.

Through our sister organisations in France, The Netherlands and Sweden, we also enable member companies to tap into an extended and trusted network of around 100 instrument user companies across Europe.

National Emphasis Assessment Register

Evaluation International are pleased to announce the establishment of a National Emphasis Assessment Register which is available to Evaluation International member companies.  This register brings together all planned, in-progress and complete emphasis assessments, undertaken on behalf of sponsor companies.

In addition to this, Evaluation International has established a working group to oversee the development of the register and supporting services. Any organisations wishing to access the register or participate in the working group should email: enquiries@evaluation-international.com and a member of our team will be happy to assist.

Association partnerships

Evaluation International has bilateral agreements with both EXERA and WIB. These agreements enable EI member companies to access the reports produced by these associations and to collaborate in working groups and projects. 

In addition, EI participates in a wider consortium of end-user organisations across Europe with member companies that operate on a global scale. The aim of this consortium is to ensure that the widest possible community of large-scale EC&I end-user organisations are provided with a platform on which to share knowledge, network, collaborate and share.

The consortium includes the following organisations:

EXERA – the French end-users association for industrial automation. [https://www.exera.com]
WIB – a process automation users association covering the Netherlands and Belgium. [https://www.wib.nl]
CLUI – the Italian Association for Automation and Instrumentation Systems. [http://www.cluias.it]
NAMUR – the German end-user association of automation technology and digitalisation in process industries. [https://www.namur.net]

"As long-standing members of Evaluation International we are delighted with this initiative. The ability to see what has already been qualified and what activities are underway or planned will greatly improve collaboration across the industry, resulting in easier access to information on a wider range of qualified instruments."


"For the first time, the nuclear industry has a single register for all emphasis assessments completed on devices for use in nuclear safety.  With the Evaluation International Emphasis Register, we have the ability for instrument specifiers to see across planned, in-progress and completed device assessments for use in nuclear safety applications. The cost and time savings generated by use of the register can be considerable. For all those involved in specifying, designing and operating safety systems for nuclear applications, this is a welcome and valuable resource."

"EI membership has proved extremely beneficial for us as an organisation.  A recent member presentation and discussion on their safety system software substantiation process, including the challenges faced and the methods used to identify and overcome them have proved to be invaluable.  The engineering resource saved as a result has been significant and the learning we took away would not have been possible without our engagement with EI.”

“EI membership gives us instant access to a large number of resources in the EC&I field and a network of trusted member organisations.  Access to the reports library across a range of key technical topics has saved us significant time and money by not reinventing the wheel.  We are then able to use our resources to build on the knowledge provided.  Being able to readily tap into the years of relevant and current experience in EC&I through engagement with other members via dedicated workshops on any range of topics has been invaluable to our engineering teams; it’s really encouraging how willing EI members are to give up their time and share their knowledge.”
