Electrical safety is a significant part of your product approval. Gain market access by consolidating all tests and approvals in one place.

Approval of your electrical safety – a regulatory requirement

Electrical safety approval is required by law for all electronic products.

Electrical safety approval is determined by the Low Voltage Directive (LVD), the electrical safety requirements in the Medical Device Regulation (MDR), the Machinery Directive (MD), the Radio Equipment Directive (RED), or other directives. This makes it a crucial prerequisite for CE marking.

If a product is not already covered by other directives, the General Product Safety Directive (GPSD) serves as a catch-all.

See 5 good reasons to have your product tested for electrical safety.

Easy, professional electrical safety testing

Instead of running from one testing provider to another, our ‘safety lab’ can handle everything for you in one place:

  • Approval planning
  • Electrical safety testing
  • Technical documentation
  • Certification of electrical safety

Everything is handled by a single project manager – professionally, efficiently, flexibly, and friendly.

As one of the largest technology businesses in the Nordic countries, we have multiple facilities for safety testing your products. This allows you to pick the location closest to your business.

For us, the most important thing is that the test is an impartial and competent approval of our product. This provides us with a good basis when we start selling the products. The test procedure has also been educational for us, as the test has given us new information about our product. Christian Trobro / ASSA Abloy

DANAK / SWEDAC / FCC, ISED, VCCI and more – accredited third-party testing

When working with us, you can receive an accredited third-party testing report.

View our list of accredited standards on DANAK's website.

These lists are constantly being expanded, also to meet your specific requests.

CB-certified reports on electrical safety and EMC

As a CB Testing Laboratory (CBTL) and CB certification organisation (NCB), we are Denmark's one and only source for CB-certified electrical safety and EMC reports.

A certified CB report is of the highest quality achievable, so you can be certain that the report will grant you access to markets in Denmark, the greater EU, and the rest of the world. In other words, this report guarantees you access to global markets.

MET Labs and NRTL safety mark grant market access in the US and Canada

It is a common misconception that only UL (Underwriters Laboratories) can certify and label products according to UL standards, thereby ensuring market access in the US and Canada. FORCE Technology has a partnership with Eurofins MET Labs, thereby offering access to the world's oldest NRTL safety mark, the MET mark.

The MET mark is based directly on our CB test reports, so there is no need for further testing elsewhere.

Expertise and integrity in electrical safety testing and certification

The partnership between FORCE Technology and MET Labs ensures a high level of competence and integrity in testing and certification. You receive precise test results, thus ensuring your product complies with the relevant requirements and safety standards for market access in the US and Canada.

We personally handle factory inspections in Denmark and nearby areas. Thus, for your semi-annual audit, you will always meet a FORCE Technology specialist with insight into your particular business and product.

How the electrical safety test is conducted

There are two parts to FORCE Technology's accredited electrical safety tests:

  • First, we evaluate your design and documentation to ensure all the required materials are present.
  • Then, we conduct a detailed testing programme to determine whether your product meets the approval requirements.

How to prepare for the electrical safety test

We start with a joint workshop. During the workshop, you will learn exactly what kinds of documentation you need to prepare in order to secure approval.

You will receive a checklist and testing plan to help you prepare efficiently. These materials provide an overview of what is needed to conduct the electrical safety test, such as software, supporting equipment and design documentation.
