Who can help me with a global certification strategy?
There is no single certification program which gives manufacturers the possibility to certify a product globally. Manufacturers must deal with different certification regimes, mainly involving these three scenarios:
- FCC certification
- Certification according to R&TTE / Radio Equipment Directive (RED)
- A national certification regime (including Industry Canada, MIC Japan)
In many cases, national certification regimes relate to the certification specifications needed for FCC and R&TTE / RED.

THE CHALLENGES OF A CERTIFICATION PROCESS
CETECOM is highly experienced in the global certification process for devices with telecommunication technology. This process differs from country to country, although the relevant certification regime may be exactly the same.
The level complexity for a certification depends on several indicators:
- How are the response times from local authorities?
- Are there any established relationships with key contacts?
- Are you able to overcome possible language barriers?
- Are you familiar with the legislative processes and challenges for a certification process?
