CE Marking: Obtain Canadian compliance

To access the Canadian market, your products must comply. This means adhering to measures for evaluating and certifying products in alignment with Federal Regulations and National Codes, such as:

  • Industrial equipment and products used as work tools in a work or professional environment: are regulated by the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS)
  • Electrical and electronic products susceptible to (unwanted) electronic emissions or electromagnetic interference: are regulated by the Dept of Communications within Canada and must be in compliance with ICES requirements.
  • Medical Devices: class I are regulated by the Medical Device Establishment License (MDEL) and class II, III and IV are regulated by Medical Device License (MDL)
  • Consumer products: are regulated by the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA)
  • Toy safety: regime is in effect under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA). There are several regulations under the CCPSA that address specific hazards with children’s toys, the main regulation is the Toys Regulations (SOR/2011-17)

What does CSA approval mean?

CSA stands for the Canadian Standards Association, and their approval is similar to the CE mark in the European Union. CSA International certifies products, including electrical and mechanical ones, as well as other risky products.

A CSA logo shows the product has been tested to Canadian standards and meets those requirements. Although CSA approval isn’t legally mandatory, government regulations or industry associations often require it. Manufacturers often prefer using CSA, a National Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL). CSA serves a dual role: developing standards and functioning as an NRTL.

Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJs) rely on NRTL reports to determine compliance with Canadian market requirements. As the CSA standards are the accepted safety requirements, all NRTLs will also use these standards to assess products. AHJs treat all NRTLs equally, as they are accredited organizations. Certification Experts executes the proces and partners with National Recognized Testing Laboratories accredited for Canadian market conformity procedures.
