A number of companies do testing to, say, 60601-1 for electrical medical device safety (i.e., Intertek, Nemko, UL, etc.). (Do note that I'm not endorsing or have any ties with the companies mentioned.) You generally want these to be accredited test labs. I presume that's not what you're asking about, though. There are plenty of mom-and-pop test shops to do basic functional testing (white / black box) which generally don't need to be accredited. A web search turns up a good many. Maybe note your specific needs?

Hi Yodon,
Excuse me if I missed it, I meant to ask about accredited labs only, the ones which provide a regulatory-acceptable test reports

Not sure if there's a single location for such information. Maybe visiting websites will help? I know of Intertek, TUV, UL, MET Labs (now part of Eurofins), & Nemko (no ties to any of them / not endorsing any of them). There are more.
