Certification for the European Market

In the European Union, only the CE Marking is required by law under the European Directives.

While the majority of electrical products qualify for self declaration, several directives require that an EU Notified Body conduct Type Testing and issue Type Certificates in support of the manufacturer's self declaration of conformity.

Notified Bodies are allowed to subcontract such testing and assessment activities to qualified test and certification bodies located outside the EU, such as QPS.

Being a qualified body, and using our European Network Partners or other two-way working agreements with European Notified Bodies, QPS can help you meet your CE marking needs by doing all the work locally.

We provide a comprehensive and full CE Marking assistance service covering a menu of options you can choose from, depending on your specific needs and capability, as follows:
  • General consultation on the European Directives and CE marking requirements.
  • Testing/evaluation to the relevant requirements of the applicable Directives that require a Quality Assurance program, and issuance of quality assessment report.
  • Assisting in the preparation of the required technical dossier.
  • Obtaining a Notified Body EC Type Certificate, where applicable.
If, in addition to the CE marking, you wish to obtain the private certification mark of a Notified Body, QPS can also help you in this regard.
As an accredited testing laboratory and certification body in the International IECEE/CB Scheme, and the IECEx Scheme, test reports and certificates issued by QPS for your complying product are readily accepted by national certification bodies in many countries around the world, including European Notified Bodies. You can use the appropriate test report and certificate issued by QPS to obtain the private mark of the Notified Body in the country where the product is marketed. This will eliminate duplicate testing, reduce your costs, and speed up time to market.
