ACCESS TO INTERNATIONAL MARKETS

 

Testing and Certification for the Markets of Europe and the United Kingdom

For a product to be marketed in the European Union, it must comply with the requirements of European directives and regulations. Manufacturers or their representatives in the EU are responsible for ensuring their products’ compliance with the applicable requirements and must indicate conformity by CE Marking. Similarly, to gain access to the UK market, products must bear the UKCA marking.

Testing and Certification for access to the US and Canadian markets

In Canada and the USA, third party certification is mandatory by law for all electrical products. The QPS mark is considered a proof of conformity that allows products to be advertised and sold in the North American market.

Applus+ can test and certify products under the IECEE/CB Scheme and IECEx agreements, which allow access to national certifications in more than 50 countries.
