Certification marks offer peace of mind to retailers, regulators, consumers and end-users worldwide by indicating that your products have been independently tested and have met the required standards for safety and performance.
Depending on which countries you are doing business in, safety and performance requirements may vary greatly. It’s important to work with experienced technical experts who understand the requirements and can help you obtain the required certification marks.
The CSA Group's Global Market Access service offering gives you access to experts who will help navigate the international requirements so that you can obtain the certification marks for electrical and electronic products, gas-fired products, plumbing products and personal protective equipment, as well as a wide variety of other products.
To sell products that fall in these categories to the North American market, they must be tested by an accredited third-party testing agency, such as the CSA Group, to applicable industry standards.
CSA Group will help streamline your access to markets around the world by providing you one-stop services for the testing and certification of your products. The company understands your product information and intellectual property are extremely valuable assets. In all cases, CSA Group works to ensure the complete confidentiality of all information you provide.
If you are launching a new product or selling into a new country, contact CSA Group to start the certification process. Alternatively, if you are using a product bearing the CSA mark and want to verify that it has been certified, you can do so by comparing the product's identification against the authentic certification record in CSA’s Certified Product Listing (CPL). You can search for products by type, industry, manufacturer name or location, as well as by certification record information.
