Accredited product certification
Certification is required as a mandatory part of certain approvals, or it may be requested as the ultimate proof of a product’s compliance.
Approval procedures require certification by notified bodyAccording to European directives as well as national regulations around the world, certification by a notified body may be required, depending on the use of the product, properties, or applied approval procedure.
Often certification is chosen voluntarily since it provides the highest level of credibility in the approval.
