Developing the highest quality electrical and electronic (E&E) goods that are safe and energy-efficient is a complex challenge in today’s competitive market.
For the radio equipment market, EU and FCC test reports/certificates are widely accepted in many countries by the National Authorities in charge of providing the needed Approvals, as a baseline to prove product compliance. However, countries such as China, Russia, and Brazil, have their own Approval Schemes with specific sets of testing requirements, not based on FCC or European standards.
Even in those countries where the Radio Regulation is based on EU/FCC test reports, acceptance and approval processes are usually not automatic. Certification processes and requirements differ from country to country, which can easily turn into unplanned costs and delays unless an efficient approval strategy has been considered from the beginning of the product development phase.
