The federal communications commission certification is an electronic product safety certification. The FCC certificate ensures that the radio frequency emitted by an electronic product is within permissible limits.
The end goal of the FCC certificate is that the oscillating signals coming out of the electronic device should not interfere with the communication signals.
One needs to comply with all the guidelines in the FCC part 15 to get the FCC certificate.
Our expert product certification consultants will help you obtain an electronic product certification that adheres to the FCC standards.
Industry Canada or IC is an electronic product certificate similar to the FCC certificate. The IC certificate follows the same regulations as the FCC certificate.
The CE RED mark stands for Conformité Européenne radio equipment directive. CE RED is an electronic product certification for the European Union.
If you want to manufacture, sell or even import your products into the European Union market, then you must obtain the CE RED mark.
If your electronic product is CE RED Mark certified, then it is assumed that it has passed the safety, health, and environmental regulations of all 28 EU member states.
UL or CSA
UL stands for underwriters’ laboratories certification, while CSA stands for Canadian standards association certification. The UL and CSA product development certification is to manufacture or market your electronic products in the USA or Canada.
The UL and CSA certificate is required, especially for battery-optimized hardware in an electronic product.
It is possible to sell your electronic products in the United States without a UL certificate. Still, we recommend you get a UL certificate for your electronics product.
This is because, without an electrical product certification like UL, you will be held liable for damages if your product malfunctions and causes serious damage to people or property. There is no point in taking such a huge risk, especially when you have expert product certification companies like iFour at your disposal.
CSA is a hardware product certification for selling products in the USA and Canada. UL is the electronics regulatory compliance that enables you to sell products in the USA.
UL 1642 is an electrical product safety certification for lithium polymer batteries.
UL 2054 is a certification for rechargeable and non-rechargeable household and commercial batteries.
We provide product certification services for both the UL well as CSA certificates.
RoHS stands for restriction of hazardous substances. RoHS is one of the most important certifications for electronic hardware products in the European Union. Any RoHS-compliant electronic product should be devoid of around ten hazardous metals like cadmium, lead, and mercury.
There are various technologies like XRF (X-Ray Fluorescence Spectroscopy) to detect the presence of hazardous metals in electronic hardware.
REACH, or Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals, is an important consumer electronics certification. You need a REACH certification to sell electronic products in the European Union. REACH is a horizontal line certificate.
This means that REACH is meant to cover the entire product life cycle. You can get a REACH certificate from a third party, or you could even go for self-declaration. You will require the REACH consumer electronics certification to certify the chemicals used in the manufacturing of electronic products. Chemicals can be in the form of paints, varnishes, or other chemicals.
Apart from the above mentioned certificates you can also get various wireless device certificates using our expertise. At iFour, we are a product certification company with experience in wireless technology certifications for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Zwave, and Zigbee products.
