SGS has published a white paper to help electrical and electronics manufacturers and importers to reach new markets quickly and efficiently.
‘International Type Approval (ITA) for Electrical & Electronics (E&E) Products’ advises and guides consumer goods manufacturers and importers through the numerous country specific type-approval schemes. Increasing globalization has seen more and more countries and regions set up their own type-approval systems to maintain:

  • The protection of the environment, focusing on the design, production and disposal phases of the life cycle of electronic products
  • The protection of the health and the safety of the user and any other person
  • The protection requirements with respect to electromagnetic compatibility in accordance with Electro-Magnetic Compatibility (EMC) regulations
  • The integrity of radio networks by ensuring that radio equipment is constructed so that it uses only the spectrum allocated to terrestrial/space communication, and orbital resources so as to avoid harmful interference

SGS’s white paper provides insight to help manufacturers and importers rise to the challenge of meeting the mandatory legal requirements for their target markets. With ITA services from SGS, they can demonstrate compliance and achieve certification against the relevant national and international standards.
