Early Stage Qualification (ESQ®) saves our clients money. 

Our ESQ program works with products for which our clients are looking to gain qualification or take to a global market, by reducing the time and frequency of testing prior to compliance. 

Element can offer strategic guidance based on our unparalleled expertise in testing and compliance as an alternative to loading the backend of the qualification and certification process, where compliance and deadlines are at risk. Working in collaboration with design teams from the very conception of a product, we build in the attributes that steer projects away from avoidable testing, compliance and approval pitfalls ensuring you pass first time and on time, while also reducing your overall testing costs. 

We have leading experts in electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), vibration & shock, radio, safety, telecommunications, global certification and approvals with experience of bringing thousands of products successfully through this process. Each expert is able to support companies with the design and testing process culminating in final testing. This means you do not have to fear penalties for missing deadlines, losing sales or market share due to late entry to market through delays in testing or compliance. 

Our ESQ services are ideal for prime manufacturers at the end of an extended supply chain, manufacturers of complex sub-systems, and companies looking to export products to a global audience. Most commonly our ESQ clients originate from:
  • Aerospace
  • Defence
  • Electrical products
  • Automotive
  • Rail
  • Oil, gas and petrochemical
  • Medical
  • Marine
  • Power generation

Market Access Services

Identification of the approvals or regulations for your product is a key requirement in the ‘product realisation’ and bringing your product to market. It is also one of the most quickly changing and a significant burden if not considered early in the design process.

Our team of Engaged Experts act as your go-to resource to identify the appropriate market access requirements for your product. This often covers multiple countries and regulatory frameworks as you often wish to sell the same products to multiple markets. Our Compliance Strategies identify the requirements, spell out the route to compliance and the various aspects that you will need to meet, including labelling, supporting information, if local representatives are needed etc. If this all seems too much, our Engaged Experts can manage the whole process for you, leaving you to concentrate on the design and functionality of the product.
