California's Department of Health Care Access and Information (HCAI) is the leader in collecting data and disseminating information about California's healthcare infrastructure. HCAI promotes an equitably distributed healthcare workforce, and publishes valuable information about healthcare outcomes. HCAI also monitors the construction, renovation, and seismic safety of hospitals and skilled nursing facilities and provides loan insurance to assist the capital needs of California's not-for-profit healthcare facilities.


Fatigue strength testing

  • Determination of static material key data
  • Determination of the fatigue strength on material samples and components in combination with environmental conditions
  • Development of test concepts for customer-specific tasks

Climate tests

  • Function testing under extreme environmental conditions: high / low temperatures, high humidity, changes in air  ressure, and combined conditions
  • Corrosion and aging tests

Material and failure analyses

  • Systematic failure analysis in compliance with VDI guideline 3822
  • Determination of damage mechanisms
  • Deduction of damage causes
  • Definition of remedial measures
  • Consulting on failure prevention measures
  • Microstructure analyses
  • Material characterisation
  • Non-destructive component testing

IABG is the only company in Europe listed by the HCAI and is thus authorised to perform certification processes.

Certification in accredited test laboratory for vibration testing

as per DIN EN ISO 17025 and HCAI

Special, often country-specific, seismic safety regulations apply for equipment in the energy and medical technology sectors.

In particular, the US state of California has its own test standards and acceptance procedures. These are monitored by special authorities who then certify the qualification of the equipment accordingly. This certification process includes the planning and execution of tests by a test laboratory accredited in compliance with ISO 17025 under the supervision of a California Licensed Structural Engineer and certification by the Department of Health Care Access and Information (HCAI).
