MOST PROJECTS ARE DELAYED DURING THE CERTIFICATION STEP
THE MAIN BLOCKING POINTS
Our internal study showed that blocking points were often linked to common reasons. This is showing trends on the main corrective actions to anticipate.
CDF Table incompleted.
Insufficient number of test samples.

For which products?
HOUSEHOLD APPLIANCE SPECIALISTS
All electrical products are subject to CE marking in Europe, and other international regulations.
Our expertise is focused more particularly on household electrical products.
The Low Voltage Directive 2014/35 /UE (or LVD) has an impact on the construction requirements of products and their electrical safety (IEC EN 60335-1)
The other directives and regulations (CEM, RED, RoHS, REACh, Food Contact, ERP, WEEE, etc.) are also to be taken into account during compliance.
COMPLIANT … WITH YOUR EXPECTATIONS
We found that too many companies were not sufficiently prepared and needed support to complete the project on time.
Our desire is to be able to help your teams to master the regulatory requirements for electrical products so as not to delay marketing. Our team communicates in French and English, in order to be able to easily discuss with your suppliers.
We participate in technical standardization committees, in order to be able to anticipate regulatory changes.
In brief, we can be your quality planners!
Quality planners, quesaco (?)
Its objective is to help build the positioning of product quality in line with the strategy, the requirements of the marketer and the expectations of the consumer.
The planners must also collect the essential elements of the brand. He must integrate them in order to be able to guide his client during the important choices: materials, performance, repairability for example.
The quality planners must have a high sensitivity to the times, in addition to regulatory skills in construction techniques and manufacturing processes.
