Companies wishing to demonstrate the conformity of their electrical and electronic (E&E) products with the relevant US and Canadian standards can do so efficiently with the help of a third-party testing and certification laboratory.

For products that could be used in the workplace must use a facility that has been officially recognized by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), as a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) in the US.

For manufacturers, losing control of the relevant certification and testing requirements can lead to delays in getting their product to market. So how can manufacturers keep compliance programs under control with increasingly complex supply chains, rapidly expanding regulations and faster product cycles?

The SGS Safety Certification Solution

SGS North America is officially recognized by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), as a NRTL in the US and is accredited by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC).
The SGS Safety Certification Mark is widely accepted throughout the US, Canada, and globally by retailers and Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ).

SGS has created an ideal solution for the certification needs of most electronics manufacturers, by combining the capabilities of multi-national compliance firms with the logistical agility of a smaller specialized lab. SGS safety certification for the US and Canada comes with:

  • Streamlined project management of testing for Safety, EMC, Batteries, Wireless, and Intrinsic Safety standards.
  • No unnecessary certification and maintenance fees
  • Brand protection and sales advantage
  • Increased visibility for your product’s quality and safety
  • OSHA recognized NRTL sites in China
  • Strong US account management support for global testing needs

For products outside the workplace, SGS is separately accredited to certify products under ISO 17065.

SGS’s expertise in compliance management will help you make the right decisions when entering the North American market. Through its global network of testing laboratories, SGS can carry out the necessary testing and certification quickly and professionally.
