Electrical engineering and electromagnetic compatibility Information about this sector

Role of accreditation in this sector

Very few people can imagine a life without electrical or electronic devices. Whether it’s the smartphone on the go, the computer in the office, the robot lawnmower in the garden or the talking toy in the kids’ room – technology determines our everyday life.

When it comes to the quality and trouble-free operation of these products, tests, inspections and product certifications – with their competence attested by accreditation – fulfil an important function. In conjunction with both national and European legal bases, they make a contribution to placing devices and equipment on the market and making the everyday use of electronic products safer.
