Obtaining International Certification for your products

In today’s increasingly demanding markets launching your product globally is rather the rule than the exception. However it can be a quite challenging process in terms of managing compliance with technical regulations. in the absence of harmonized standards and requirements combined with country specific national standards manufacturers need to be aware of the regulations for each country they want to access. Certification Experts provides global market access and international certification solutions for manufacturers internationally. This process greatly depends on the type of product you manufacture.

Acquiring multiple national safety certifications for your product

The CB Scheme offers the potential of performing one test and certification to obtain one or more national certification marks in one go. The idea of the scheme is that each National Certification Body NCB will recognize test reports issued by one another so that a manufacturer does not have to have a product re-tested many times if they want to use a particular certifying body’s test mark on that product. The CB-scheme offers manufacturers a solution go through one testing procedure to acquire multiple national safety certifications. It can be seen as a product passport for the world and in some cases you need to acquire a stamp in your passport by means of additional testing for national deviations.

A comparison of CB-scheme, CE marking and UL/CSA

The CE-marking procedure is not part of the CB-scheme. However it can function as a perfect base for the CE-marking. Due to the IEC standards that are used which are similar to the European standards the CE-marking process can be completed based on the CB-scheme. Based on the CB test certificate and the associated CB test report you will be able to receive a UL and/or CSA certification with limited additional testing. These test can also be incorporated from the start to perform the testing in one go.
