International Type Approval

International Product Certification for Wireless Technologies

DEKRA’s international type approval experts help you get the wireless technologies in your products approved for business anywhere in the world.
Approval regulations can vary considerably from one country to another, making the product certification process a complex task. Some EU countries, for example, share the same approval scheme, while others work with their own processes and guidelines. It is difficult to know all the requirements, let alone keep up with the latest changes.
For DEKRA’s type approval specialists, handling the approvals needed to meet a particular country’s regulations and standards is something they do every day. Our knowledgeable experts help you plan your international approval campaigns and manage them on a global scale, working closely with an experienced network of local compliance partners.
