Product Certification & Marks

Get your products accepted and ready for use all over the world

Certification marks demonstrate that your products have been tested thoroughly and meet the required safety or performance standards. At DEKRA, we issue a wide range of marks and certifications so you can demonstrate to your clients and end-users that safety, performance, and quality are important to you. In addition, the risks of liability and reputation issues are reduced. In addition, using one of DEKRA’s marks makes it easier to export your products or components to different countries since the marks are often compatible with other national schemes.
Products marketed in the European Union need to meet various regulations relating to aspects such as, safety, performance, and quality. For most products, manufacturers, importers, and retailers can demonstrate compliance with the applicable regulations by means of the CE mark. They perform the CE conformity assessment themselves and issue the CE mark. Often, they will involve an objective and independent third party, such as DEKRA, to obtain a safety or quality mark (e.g. KEMA-KEUR, ENEC+, or GS).
For specific product groups, it is mandatory to arrange for a third party – called a Notified Body – to certify compliance. This is called an EU-Type Examination. Examples of such product groups include medical devices and electrical products used in explosive atmospheres, toys and telecom & carriers.
At DEKRA we provide testing and certification services in nearly 200 countries and regions, and we work with more than 100 partners worldwide for local approvals.

The certification marks we issue

At DEKRA, we issue a wide range of marks and certifications so you can demonstrate to your clients and end-users that safety, performance and quality are important to you.
Manufacturers increasingly need to demonstrate that their electrical products comply with IEC standards. In addition, they need regional differences to be taken into account. A CB report shows that you meet these criteria and opens doors for your company worldwide. With a CB report you can apply for other national certification marks from test houses affiliated with the IECEE. DEKRA acts as a National Certification Body (NCB) and as a Certified Body Testing Laboratory (CBTL). We can test and certify under the CB scheme.
