Top 5 Benefits of Pre-Certification Testing
From research and prototyping to final product development, it takes a significant amount of time and resources to create a safe, compliant product. When it’s time for certification, why risk late penalties and redesign costs when you can mitigate risk with pre-certification testing?
Pre-certification should be considered for test programs with high product safety risks, electronic equipment, complicated technical documentation, or newly developed components.
Our testing programs address 5 major issues facing product compliance, including:
Avoidance of requalification costs
One of the main benefits of our pre-certification testing services, we thoroughly inspect your product and help you identify any potential failure points before testing. If your product or system fails its last test on a 20-day program, the repeat testing costs could be substantial – we help ensure that doesn’t happen.
Meet on-time delivery
Getting your product to market before the deadline is more vital than ever. Building in time for pre-certification testing and design modifications gives you a realistic timeline and helps you avoid unexpected challenges at the last minute.
Provide baseline performance evaluation
During the design phase, pre-certification testing is a quick and easy way to check the baseline performance of your system. We test prototype systems at regular intervals, ensuring that design aims and final product performance are well-aligned.

Reduce redesign/manufacturing costs
If a design flaw is identified during pre-certification, the costs are limited to updating the product and producing another prototype. However, if a flaw is found in your manufactured product, the cost of physically altering many systems could be prohibitive. Carrying out pre-certification prior to manufacturing can be the difference between the financial success and failure of a project.
Ensure the efficacy of modifications
For products and systems that are heavily modified, there is a good chance that performance will have altered. Conducting pre-certification testing before formal qualification will help ensure that any modifications that were made have improved the system’s performance.
