Your trusted expert for demonstrating product safety and reliability
The rapid growth and technological advances in the marketplace for audio, visual and information technology (IT) equipment is leading to greater expectations among retailers and consumers for quality and reliability. In addition, applicable regulations and standards are not uniform from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, and frequently change to reflect new requirements. Global manufacturers also face major challenges across their entire supply chains, from rising raw material prices, high transportation costs and disposal and end-of-life considerations.
Our audio, visual and IT equipment testing services
Testing and certification of audio, visual and IT equipment is generally required for access to most important global markets. Nearly all jurisdictions require product testing for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and electrical safety. Many also require testing to determine the presence of harmful chemicals or other substances, or to assess a product’s energy usage. In addition to mandatory testing, some products may also be subject to performance testing to verify image or audio quality, and major retail customers may require additional product testing and supply chain assessments as part of their product procurement process.
