Product certification or product qualification is the process of certifying that a certain product has passed performance tests and quality assurance tests, and meets qualification criteria stipulated in contracts, regulations, or specifications. This is typically called “certification schemes” in the product certification industry.
For companies selling their products internationally, it is essential to understand the importance of product testing, regulatory compliance, and product certification in the destination countries. Depending on the country or region, certain product compliance approval certifications are mandatory. Testing their products for regulatory compliance requirements benefits importers and exporters because certification provides quality assurance to the market in which the products are being sold, helping to increase competitive advantage, and significantly reducing unintended costly product liabilities.
