Are you looking to export your products to Canada then chances are big your product needs to comply with the Canadian Product Safety Regulations. This process differs a lot compared to the steps you need to take for other certifications, since it covers mandatory and voluntary aspects.  As exporter of consumer and industrial products your products must comply to specific standards which are drafted by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA).

Throughout Canada, the provinces and territories will not allow unlisted or unlabeled equipment to be installed or used at manufacturing and commercial sites within their communities. This could lead to retaining the product at the border, fines, legal disputes and shut down by the local authority.

Our CSA certification solutions

In general there are two paths that can be followed depending on the product and the applicable legislation. We can offer:

  • Product Certification
    Your product needs to be tested against the applicable product standard. It must undergo several tests at one of our accredited partners. Typically the testing requirements consist out:
    – Construction (materials, spacings, components wiring protection)
    – Markings (nameplate, cautions and warnings, installation manual)
    – Type testing
    – Factory inspection
 
Product Certification Approval CE Mark

  • Field Evaluation
    When you are producing specials, one-offs or limited quantities (up to 500), field evaluation could be a suitable solution for both Canada and the US. In many cases Field Evaluation is an acceptable form of approval recognized by the local regulatory Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ).
