Ensure electrical and electronic products are safe and open the door to more than 50 markets. 


Manufacturers of electrical and electronic equipment aim to sell their products in as many markets as possible. At the same time, they look to minimize the amount of time and money they need to spend navigating the specific requirements for each market. 

The CB Scheme provides a mechanism for mutual acceptance of test reports and certificates between participating members, of which there are more than 50 certification bodies from countries spanning Europe, America, Asia, Oceania and Africa. The scheme’s objective is to eliminate duplication of testing and to provide manufacturers with a simplified means of obtaining multiple national safety certifications for their products.
