One area of product testing prioritizes safety standards and requirements. Needless to say, every product should still be tested for integrity and that much is happening already. Today, there is also an increased focus on wireless product testing due to increasing convergences of information technology and radio or telecoms technologies.
The wireless and digital environment is fast becoming the new normal for many homes and businesses. In regard to the safety criteria of product testing, the following procedures are followed. The product will be tested against designated safety standards. Once the test is completed, an inspection report will be drawn up.
And at the end of it all, certification is issued. Recognized safety standards must take into account fire hazards, electrical shocks, high temperatures, implosions, mechanical hazards and even radiation. All test data is collated and stored in a technical file. This compilation will be assessed by the related or relevant certification body. Certification is only granted on condition that all relevant requirements have been met.
Thereafter, the granted certification will be marked on the tested product, packaging and all other related commercial materials. All good and well, you would have thought. But safety and product testing does not end there. After a successful certification, the manufacturing center will be subjected to regular inspections to make sure that its high standards of safety and production quality continue to be met.
And what reputable manufacturer would not welcome such an opportunity to showcase its compliance and integrity? Indeed, and by now it should be well aware that its equipment buyers, retailers and importers, as well as operators of its equipment require steady improvements to product quality and supply chain management. And it makes business sense to remain compliant. Not doing so could be quite costly for any business.
