SGS opens doors to new markets with publication of latest ‘Global Access Program for E&E Markets’

SGS, the world’s leading inspection,
verification, testing and certification company, is pleased to announce
publication of the latest version of its
Global Access Program (GAP) for Electrical & Electronics Products
white paper.

With the continuous growth of worldwide trading
business, and more countries and regions establishing their own type-approval
systems, the GAP white paper has become an
essential reference for Electrical & Electronics (E&E) manufacturers
and importers looking to reach new markets quickly and efficiently.

The latest 48-page document incorporates a number of countries and regions that
have set up type-approval systems since the document was first published in
2015, reflecting growing global ambition to:

  • Protect the environment – focusing on the
    design, production and disposal phases of the life cycle of electronic
  • Protect the health and safety of the user and
    any other person
  • Maintain protection requirements regarding
    electromagnetic compatibility in accordance with Electro-Magnetic
    Compatibility (EMC) regulations
  • Maintain the integrity of radio networks by
    ensuring that radio equipment is constructed to use only the spectrum
    allocated to terrestrial/space communication and orbital resources, so as
    to avoid harmful interference

Ben Lv,
Deputy Director EEC & Auto, SGS, said: “In
today’s fast-moving global market, manufacturers and importers of electrical
and electronics products will struggle to access new markets if they fail to
meet the challenge of mandatory legal requirements. That’s why we’re
delighted to launch the latest version of our Global Access Program white paper
which ultimately gives manufacturers and importers
the benefit of a consolidated global service and a short cut to new target

Written by a panel of International Type Approval (ITA)
experts, the white paper explores and investigates the latest array of national
and international standards including the CB Scheme, CE Mark, GS Mark, FI Mark,
CEBEC and ENEC standards, as well as a plethora of certification schemes around

marking process whilst alerting organizations to the pitfalls of non-compliance
when seeking to reach new target markets
