Design the product to meet the standards from the outset
Most products sold have to meet prescribed standards. Depending on the product these can include wireless communications, electro-magnetic compatibility, safety or other standards. The types of product and their potential impacts of failure generally inform the type of testing required.
Many products sold in the UK and Europe can be self-certified. This doesn’t mean that there is no requirement for risk assessments or testing. Where the products are covered by a harmonised European standard the manufacturer of each product must have an evidence folder including risk assessments, controlled drawings and test results.
Life safety products have more stringent requirements, often needing the involvement of third parties known as notified bodies.
