Accredited Safety Testing and Consulting

Are you familiar with EU directives, such as the Low Voltage Directive (LVD)? Do you know the product safety standard requirements for your specific equipment? Don't worry, we can help you.

Product Safety as a Service

Product safety requirements are often overlooked in the R&D phase, which becomes evident during testing. At Etteplan, we understand the importance of placing product safety high on your priority list. When delivering products to EU markets, it is essential to understand the directives and recognize the relevant product standards. 

We support you by identifying the necessary product standards and reviewing your products against specific safety requirements. By ensuring alignment with relevant standards, we guarantee that your products will stay on the market.

Introduction to Product Safety Requirements

The maze of directives may seem daunting, but understanding product safety requirements is not as complicated as it seems. Product designers, developers, and R&D engineers should be aware of these directives from the start. At Etteplan, we have experts who can train your team to incorporate these essential requirements early in the development process. 

Product safety is crucial because market surveillance authorities actively inspect products at shelves and stocks. When a suspicious product is found, they have the authority to take samples for safety testing. Non-compliance with essential safety requirements can lead to restrictions on sales and marketing, and in severe cases, the importer or manufacturer may be forced to recall their products. This can damage a brand's reputation and result in significant costs. Avoid the nightmare of having unsellable stock by ensuring your equipment meets all necessary safety standards.
