Pre-market approval and certification is a legal requirement for manufacturers of many types of products, components, and accessories seeking access to major markets worldwide. In addition, to meet mandatory certification requirements, manufacturers choose to have their products tested for compliance with the technical requirements of voluntary standards. By submitting their products for additional voluntary testing and certification, companies can differentiate their products from those of competitors, and further demonstrate their commitment to providing buyers and consumers with quality products that are also safe to use.
Certification assures suppliers, retailers, regulators, and consumers that an independent organization has reviewed a product’s manufacturing process and determined that the product complies with specific standards for safety, quality, sustainability, or performance.
