Between new technology and the growing list of certification regulations, access to the global marketplace is becoming more of a challenge for manufacturers. Entering new markets is more important than ever to achieving growth and staying competitive – but with unique requirements in individual countries, it can be difficult to know if your products are compliant. Our team of international certification experts provides the testing and certification assistance needed to bring your products to a worldwide audience.

In most countries, certification applies to a variety of products, including electronics, wireless device, medical devices and other consumer products. Our international certification program helps you understand the requirements of your target market, identify what standards and tests are required and compile the technical documentation needed to apply for certification (in some cases, we are authorized to issue the certification to you directly).

As a global platform of labs, we have extensive experience providing testing and certification for countries around the world. We offer a full suite of radiofrequency, EMC and product qualification testing services, allowing us to assist with international certifications for a range of products and industries.
