What are the important aspects of product certification and compliance?
In order to launch a new product in the EU, it is necessary to obtain a conformity assessment or product certification before a declaration of conformity can be issued and CE mark affixed.
Nowadays, products are usually used globally. For this purpose, the regulations of the respective country must be observed carefully.
In the USA, for example, FCC approval is required, in Canada, ISEC, and in Japan, it’s ARIB. Such approvals have different requirements and the associated costs should be included in the budget prior to design or at least for service and maintenance budget.
