Element’s advisory services provide industry-specific advice and guidance to help you understand the regulatory requirements for road maps to complete initial product qualification, or gain approval for global markets. By providing clear guidance and direction at an early stage, we reduce the time, cost and frequency of testing prior to certification.

Element’s global team of experts offer strategic guidance on testing and approvals at the beginning of your program, as an alternative to overloading the back end of the testing or certification process. Our advisory services save time and cost, and help mitigate the risks of failing compliance checks or missing deadlines. Working with design teams from the conception of a product, we build in attributes that steer projects away from avoidable testing, compliance and approval pitfalls, helping your product pass first time.

Test Plans – working within test requirements and program mandates, we provide specific and detailed guidance on how to prepare your product for testing including modes of operation, specialist software, cables required etc.

Gap Analysis – when a test standard is updated or replaced by a newer version, there is always a dilemma of testing or not. We use gap analysis to compare the new standard against an older version, determining what requirements have changed and if additional testing is required.
