About Product Certifications
The product certification process is an effective mechanism for assessing compliance with regulations and standards addressing safety, quality and other product characteristics.
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 to 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.
