Our Services

Issuing of test reports

Certificates fitting to your market demand:

  • Certificate of Conformity (CoC):
    States the conformity of the tested sample complies with the specified standards. It does not permit the use of any test mark and it does not prove the conformity of mass- produced products (factory inspection is not part of the certification).

  • CB Test Certificate:
    Verifies that the product complies with the applicable international IEC standards within the IECEE CB Scheme. A CB Test Certificate is valid with the pertaining CB Test Report.

  • CCA Notification of Test Result (NTR):
    Verifies that the product complies with the applicable European EN standards within the European CCA Certification Scheme.
    Note: CCA = CENELEC Certification Agreement (a certification agreement among CENELEC member countries. CENELEC is the European standardization body for electrical and electronic equipment and components.)

  • TÜV Bauart (Type Approved) Mark Certificate:
    Verifies that a representative production sample complies with the relevant standard requirements and the production is regularly inspected. In general, those certified products are components intended to be built into larger arrays and equipment. The type testing scheme contributes to consumer protection and supports an increasingly safe and standard compliance for products coming into the market.

  • ENEC Mark Certificate:
    Verifies that the product (not only the tested sample) complies with the applicable European EN standards within the European ENEC Certification Scheme and the production is regularly inspected. It permits the use of the ENEC Mark. The ENEC Mark must be accompanied with the identification number of the issuing certification body. E.g.: TÜV Rheinland InterCert: ENEC 18
