As a National Certification Body (NCB), Element helps your electrical and electronic products meet the strictest levels of safety and performance in compliance with the IEC standard and gain access to the relevant marketplace in over 50 countries. 

The IECEE CB Scheme is an international system for mutual acceptance of test reports and certificates dealing with the safety of electrical and electronic components, equipment, and products. It is operated by the IEC System for Conformity Assessment Schemes for Electrotechnical Equipment and Components (IECEE). 


Local partner for international product compliance 

As your National Certification Body (NCB), Element uses the principle of mutual recognition (reciprocal acceptance) of test results to issue internationally recognized certificates and gain approvals at national levels around the globe.  


Your one-stop-shop to save time and money

Element's IECEE CB Scheme services offer a convenient one-stop shop for testing and certification based on IEC International Standards. With this approach, you only need one test and one certification that is recognized worldwide, saving you time and money that would otherwise be spent on multiple test programs with various test laboratories.


A single test to bring your products to market faster  

With a CB certificate in hand, you typically won't need to conduct any additional testing except for specific national differences or in-country requirements. However, if in-country testing is necessary, NCBs involved in the CB process will prioritize your certification application, ultimately speeding up the approval and testing process for your products.


One certification to enter global markets

At Element, we work with you from day one, help you understand your Global Market Access requirements, and support you through the process of gaining a CB certificate and getting your products to market faster. We have deep knowledge of all relevant testing standards and certification programs and have access to a global network of expertise.
