Electrical and Electronics Safety Testing and Certification

Your Local Partner for Access to Global Markets

Liiketoimintahaaste

Products come and go, but manufacturers and retailers that want a shelf life beyond the next Christmas season must sell safe products. Brand image and reputation carefully nurtured for years can be tainted in an instant. A large recall or liability for customer injury can wipe out in a single loss many of a merchant’s smart plays. There are numerous measures that need to be considered by Electrical and Electronic product suppliers:

    - Vendor selection: The first line of defense is a shared vision of a long-term buyer/vendor relationship. With continuity of the relationship and future business at stake, vendors have strong incentives to design safe products and avoid cutting corners. - Third-party certification: The second line of defense is the third-party product safety certification. An independent third-party expert in safety scrutinizes prototype design or early production samples, and screens out significant errors that even the most diligent design houses miss. Certification schemes also include some factory surveillance, which is generally implemented through quarterly visual inspections to catch design drift. - Compliance with sourcing and performance specifications (protocols): Production samples reviewed against a sourcing or performance specification by a third-party frequently catch variations from the original certification samples.

Ratkaisu

What is Safety Testing and Certification? To achieve electrical safety certification, three key steps have to be complied with.

    - Firstly, the product is tested against recognized safety standards for criteria such as electric shock, excessive temperature, radiation, implosion, mechanical hazards and fire. - Secondly, a technical file (including factory inspection report) is complied and then assessed by the certification body. Assuming all is in line with relevant requirements, certification is granted and the associated mark may be used on the product, packaging, commercial materials, etc… - Following successful certification, the manufacturing facility is regularly inspected to ensure continuity of production quality.
What are the key benefits?
    - Demonstrate by way of an independent test report to your clients and authorities that your product is compliant - Safety consultants can advise on designing compliance into your future products - Save on investing heavily in Safety test equipment, calibration, accreditations and staffing by outsourcing to a global leader in compliance solutions.

  • What alternatives to lab based testing exist?

    Testing at Manufacturer’s Premises (TMP) - Used for CE marking purposes, but can also be used as the basis for CB and other forms of Product Certification. Witness Manufacturer’s Testing (WMT) - This assumes the manufacturer has the relevant equipment and approval. Again, this scheme can be used for all types of CE marking, CB and Product certification. The manufacturer’s laboratory and staff is audited in accordance with ISO/IEC 17025. Acceptance of Client’s Testing (ACT) - Of particular use to manufacturers with an established and mature safety test laboratory process and staff. Used for all forms of product certification. Test reports are written by the manufacturer’s own test staff. The manufacturer’s laboratory and staff is audited in accordance with ISO/IEC 17025. Supervised Manufacturer’s Testing (SMT) - One of the most versatile schemes. Testing is performed by the manufacturer with their own test equipment in their laboratory. The test reports are compiled by the manufacturer and are then reviewed and approved, if satisfactory, by the test laboratory. The manufacturer’s laboratory must operate independently from other departments, with no staff having perceived, or actual, conflicts of interest within the organization.
