ELECTRIC AND ELECTRONIC PRODUCTS
The ever-increasing exchange of products on a global scale, so typical of today’s markets, has led to a need to encourage trust between everyone involved – manufacturers, consumers and official bodies – in a technically credible manner, but which is also compatible with a reduced “time to market” of most current products. This, in turn, has led to the increasing adoption of technical standards in the European Union’s regulations and in the legislation of its Member States, which have converged on essential product requirements. As such, there is a need to assess compliance of electrical and electronic products in order to be granted the CE marking required in the European market, covering safety requirements (Low Voltage Directive), electromagnetic compatibility (EMC Directive) and energy efficiency (EcoDesign and Energy Labeling Directives), among others.
IEP’s laboratories provide manufacturers with a wide range of electrical and electronic product testing, based on European and international standards, for assessment of the compliance of these products.
These laboratories are accredited by the Portuguese Institute for Accreditation – IPAC. Thanks to the EA and ILAC agreements, of which Portugal is a signatory, the tests carried out by IEP are officially recognized throughout the world.
IEP’s laboratories are also recognized in Europe by ETICS – European Testing, Inspection and Certification System (ENEC, KEYMARK and CCA agreements) and internationally by the IECEE – International Electrotechnical Commission System of Conformity Assessment Schemes for Electrotechnical Equipment and Components (CB agreements). Thanks to these agreements, manufacturers that turn to IEP for the certification of their electrical and electronic products have direct access to the certification marks used in many other countries.
