Accreditations and conformity assessment bodies
The cases of testing laboratories (DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025) and certification bodies for products (DIN EN ISO/IEC 17065) apply both the European and global requirements relating to interference immunity and interference emissions from devices and systems. In addition, the requirements for conformity assessment bodies from the various free trade agreements between the EU and other countries or regions (e.g. South Korea, CETA) are also accredited.
Benefits of accreditation
To bring the products or services in this subject area smoothly onto the market in Europe or worldwide (i.e. for the export of products, systems and services), a test report and/or a product certificate are very helpful in most cases from the point of view of the manufacturer or service provider, or indeed required.
