How to Successfully Navigate Complex Consumer Electrical Regulations in Latin America

SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification company, has published an article looking at the issues surrounding market access for consumer electricals in Latin America.

Latin America (LatAm) incorporates twenty countries, with each enforcing their own product safety regulations. Even when commercial agreements exist between countries – MERCOSUR or CAN – importers still face a diversity of requirements and uneven criteria for market access.

SGS’s Consumer Compact article looks at the problem from the perspective of the manufacturer or supplier trying to access these growing markets. It considers the barriers to trade and the benefits of International Type Approval (ITA) when accessing markets for electrical and electronic (EE) products.
