Testing a product and making sure it complies to relevant standards is an important step for manufacturers who want to bring a product to the global market. Regulations regarding product certification can vary from country to country. Kiwa facilitates an extensive portfolio of approval and testing services for product certification. We ensure that the time to market for your certified products will be as short as possible.

CE marking

CE marking is not a certification. Still, it is important for bringing your products to the European market. The EU has defined more than twenty product groups for which CE marking applies. The legal requirements are described in guidelines and regulations.

Kiwa is notified and accredited to test and certify your products for the European market. Having labs in many countries (and expanding) we are in a position to offer services on a local basis.

UKCA marking

The new UK product safety marking UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) is used for goods being placed on the UK market. It covers most goods which previously required the CE marking. The UKCA marking came into effect on 1 January 2021. Kiwa’s testing laboratories can provide UKCA mark guidance on gas, solid fuel, electrical and electronic appliances.
