Emitech Certification will initially become a Notified Body for CE marking for ISO 17065-product certification. It will issue certificates of conformity under the RED 2014/53/EU directive for radio communication equipment, and the EMC 2014/30/EU (electromagnetic compatibility) directive. The service will assess the a product’s conformity when there are not any harmonised standards yet. This will extending the validity of a test report to an entire range of products and validate the integration of sub-assemblies by partial tests or a voluntary approach by a manufacturer.
Emitech Certification is intended to support manufacturers that wish to sell products internationally. It looks after the technical and administrative formalities, arranges for local tests to be carried out if required for approvals, and chooses the most suitable procedure. The CB Scheme (CB Scheme) allows manufacturers to approach export markets in over 50 countries. Emitech's international certification service has been recognised as an NCB (National Certification Body). It can now manage its network of CBTLs (Certification Body Testing Laboratories), and deliver CB certificates pertaining to the member countries.
The CB scheme is an international certification program for the exchange and acceptance of product test results from recognized participating laboratories, "CBTLs", and National Certification Bodies, "NCBs" in more than 50 countries around the world. The CB Scheme looks to constantly harmonize electrical product safety and electromagnetic compatibility requirements at international level, while also taking national deviations into account.
The mutual recognition of CB certificates between countries means that the tests are recognised in these member countries. This makes it easier for manufacturers to obtain certification marks (NF, etc.).
Four Emitech laboratories have already been recognized as CBTLs for medical, laboratory, multimedia and information processing equipment. A CBTL depends on a single NCB. Since April 2020, Emitech's certification service has been recognized as a National Certification Body, meaning the service can issue CB certificates from its own CBTL laboratories.
