Spanning several decades and thousands of product certifications, our project managers and support engineers have developed fast and efficient methods and strategies to achieve the compliance outcomes you need.

From pre-compliance testing and assistance with standards interpretations in order to achieve conformance for EMC, product safety, Interworking and multi-discipline product standards inc MIL-STD 461 and DO-160, we’re able to follow through to achieve rapid 1st tier country certifications such
as FCC/UL/IC for North America, CE marking for Europe and Japanese approvals from JATE and Telec.

Our offices and agents can then support your product rollout throughout Asia, South America and the Middle East, holding certifications on your behalf where necessary.

Where testing in Government labs is necessary, our local offices and agents arrange importation of samples and the necessary customs clearance, liaise with the lab as to the minimum suite of tests required, hand carry test samples to the lab and where necessary, provide witness testing. For complex equipment that requires specific engineering support, we accompany a manufacturer’s support engineer to the lab, provide necessary translations and work to solve any non-compliance issues that may arise.

Global Approvals

Approval Specialists have offices and agents that process approval certificates, hold sDoC’s or manage compliance folders for the following countries. A formal quote will be provided before commencement to ensure there are no hidden costs. Any related factory inspection fees are typically levied direct from the country specific regulator to the manufacturer, although we can also assist in this process by arranging inspection dates and ensuring the regulator is satisfied with a manufacturer’s quality system documentation ahead of any visit.

Consulting

Our extensive global network provides more than just product approvals.

For new or emerging technologies, an approvals path may not exist. We provide in-country lobbying to Governments, Regulators and Carriers to achieve desired outcomes. Wireless and spectrum management issues are also encompassed. We leverage off the experience of our local agents to ensure dedicated in-country support for your activities.

As a client utilizing our services, you’re welcome to request info relating to specific markets or changes to legislation that will impact on the technology that your company promotes.

We also provide support by connecting manufacturers with in-country channel partners experienced in product distribution and marketing. This is particularly important in Asia, where the right partner is critical to success. Refer to our “market access” page for more info.

Pre Testing

We have more than 20 years of expertise when evaluating products against global telecom, EMC and safety standards. This experience stretches to telecom testing services and telecom equipment
certification. Where 3rd party testing is accepted and has not yet been performed, we are able to provide quotations from various, cost competitive partner test labs.

Likewise, where 3rd partly results are not accepted (CMC/SIRIM for Malaysia, NALTE and SRRC
for China as examples), we are able to perform preliminary evaluations of your product to ensure the in-country test process is smooth and trouble free.

In-House Test and pre-telecom testing services are offered for:

Safety Standards IEC/UL60950, IEC 62368-1, IEC 61010-1, IEC 60065, IEC 60335 and sub sections, including
CB Reports and Certs.

EMC emission and immunity standards such as EN55011, EN55012, EN55013, EN55014-1, EN55015, CISPR 32, EN55024, FCC Part 15,
EN50082-1 & -2.

We offer advice and solutions to failures and have close relationships with many of the reputable testing providers in North America, Asia and Europe.

Market Access

‘Market Access’ encompasses our pre-testing, testing and approvals services, while incorporating our in-country knowledge
to assist with selection of channel partners and customs clearance. We provide an unbiased
opinion as to prospective channel partners and can arrange or facilitate initial meetings.

As an example, we are able to compile a list of companies capable of distributing your products within a specific country, forward their company profiles including our assessment of their weaknesses and strengths, assist with short listing candidates and arrange meetings between both parties. We also provide translation or interpreter services where required.

This service is provided at a fixed hourly rate and free of back room commissions to ensure unbiased selection of the right company.
