The world of product standards is changing. As technology advances, new methods of inspection and testing have to be devised and written. Also, as global commerce advances, our methods of evaluating products and equipment need to be recognizable in any country. In the US, this means, for example, that the UL standards are becoming harmonized with the international (IEC/EN) standards.
Experts in testing regularly develop new testing programs based on the needs of product manufacturers and designers. The CertifiGroup laboratory team is ready to meet any testing and certification challenge.
New European Regulations
Are you ready for RoHS? RoHS is the European Union's Restriction of Hazardous Substances directive. Meeting RoHS requirements can be complex, especially for certain manufacturers. For example, an HVAC manufacturer needs to evaluate all components to meet the new RoHS requirements, and if one component is not compliant, this could jeopardize sales in the EU (similar to with CE self-declaration). RoHS requirements deadlines are quickly approaching. Call CertifiGroup, or check back for more updates soon. Make sure to check out our CE Marking page.
Years of testing products in hundreds of categories gives us the experience to design a test program that meets the required level of safety, without wasting time and capital on unnecessary steps.
