Product certification


Product certification guarantees the consistency of the manufacture of a product in relation to the characteristics and performance in terms of quality, safety and reliability of the product defined in a standard or a certification reference system.

The certification procedure also attests that all identical products delivered comply.

Product certification is usually accompanied by the right to use a mark of conformity, which may be affixed to the product and associated documents to enhance the product's performance for consumers and guarantee its fitness for use.


  • Product certification allows :


- Market access, i.e. entering new markets with appropriate product certification and conformity;


- Market development: increase the potential of existing markets and enter new markets;


- rapid market entry: for time-sensitive industries, product testing and certification can accelerate market entry;


- Risk management: minimising risk and liability in selected markets and accessing reliable and robust decision making through risk management and compliance;


- Product differentiation: testing and certification will enable a company's products to differentiate themselves from their competitors
