Cary, NC, United States, 2010/04/18 - CertifiGroup helps manufacturers comply with product certification for US / Canada / EU (UL, CSA, CE) with lab sessions in Cary NC. Visit Booth 1824 at the ATX South in Charlotte April 28-29.
One of the keys to competing in the North American and European markets is being prepared for regulatory hurdles. With the right planning and design techniques, there can be a great advantage in time to market with no delays at the testing laboratory. Most testing labs are very similar in this way: When issuing a quotation for certification work, the quote “Assumes” the product will be compliant. Many manufacturers have the experience and engineering staff to submit compliant products – many more do not.
It’s important to ask the following questions: Has the correct product Standard been identified? Was it used in the design from the beginning? Was testing performed with the correct test, testing techniques and test equipment? Will this testing turn out the same when the product reaches the testing lab?
If the answers to any of these questions are “No” or unknown, assistance from a qualified, experienced lab is needed to avoid delays and cost increases. With the correct preparation products can be ready for certification, and the manufacturer can gain a significant competitive advantage, selling in North America and Europe well ahead of other companies with similar products.
CertifiGroup currently provides this advantage to many companies, and is now offering free evaluation time at the Cary NC testing laboratory. These complimentary sessions can make the difference between a quick regulatory process and delays and failures at the testing lab.
