With the XXI century, product compliance issues has gone through a tremendous change. Not long ago, manufacturers had to face a cumbersome process of getting their product approved for every given country they wanted access to. The processes were different and so were the technical requirements. Thanks to the pressure from the industry on global trade and efforts within international standardization, manufacturers can now reduce their costs by testing and certifying their product once for a relatively large market and get acceptance in many countries. A key player for you can be ECM. Requirements are set forth in various international schemes that replace individual country safety standards. The international schemes apply to products manufactured within but also exported to various countries. In a modern world everybody is surrounded by products. Products which in most cases contribute to ease our everyday life, but which could also pose a threat to our health and/or the environment. ECM will guide you through the process of selecting the relevant rules and regulations for your product. The rules and regulations could come from an official authority, an interest group, or from a reputable independent body. Examples are many and could be taken from any region/continent of the world. The common denominator for most of these rules and regulations is that there is some kind of requirement for an independent body to examine the product and make a statement about its compliance. This is often referred to as Product Certification.
