Frequently Asked Questions

Display all Hide all

How can I get fast testing and certification for my product?

To speed up testing and the certification process, make sure to give complete descriptions of the device, make sure all functions of your device are properly tested, and be sure to provide correct and consistent documentation.

How many samples are needed for testing?

Multiple samples may be required, depending on laboratory requirements and the testing being conducted.

Do I need to provide test samples to regulatory agencies?

Certain devices may be subject to provide a sample to a regulatory agency in cases where compliance requirements are of particular concern. This depends on the country and their authorities. For many countries, we are accredited to test and certify at our labs.

Is there anything I should be aware of after certification?

As a manufacturer, you are responsible to ensure that the products you are marketing are representative of the tested device and you must remain in compliance with regulatory statutes at all times.

How soon can I start shipping after successful certification?

You may ship your product the moment you receive certification. Being prepared and ready to launch is therefore important in shortening your time-to-market.
