Certification is an indication that the product complies with specific standards and is safe to use. The issued certificate also indicates the manufacturer’s commitment to providing quality products.
You don’t have to worry about the quality, performance, or reliability when purchasing certified electronic products such as chargers from AoHai. It has been tested for safety and its reliability for your satisfaction.
The ETL Mark is proof of product compliance to North American safety standards. Authorities Having Jurisdiction(AHJs) and code officials across the US and Canada accept the ETL Listed Mark as proof of product compliance to published industry standards. Retail buyers accept it on products they’re sourcing.
CE certification is a mandatory requirement in the European Union (EU) for selling electrical products, including chargers and adapters.
It certifies that the product meets the essential requirements of applicable EU Directives and will be safe and reliable when used under normal conditions per the manufacturer’s instructions.
The CE marking is required by European regulations and indicates compliance with applicable EU directives. It is not a guarantee that a product is safe or suitable for use; it merely indicates that it meets minimum safety requirements set by the EU. The CE mark must be affixed to each unit of an electrical appliance before being placed on the market (sold) or put into service.
The CE marking indicates compliance with all applicable EU directives and regulations for each product type covered under those directives.
However, it does not indicate compliance with all national laws within member states of the EU since those are generally not harmonized across Europe, nor does it demonstrate compliance with any international standards or agreements such as UL’s own UL 989 standard for lighting.
The United States has required standards for products that might contribute to electromagnetic interference in order to reduce the level of radio frequency (rf) interference between electronic devices. Any electronic device or piece of equipment that is sold in the United States must not compromise the safety of the American public or interfere with other electronic products.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is in charge of the development, enforcement and implementation of regulations that Congress set forth in the Communications Act of 1934 and the Telecommunications Act of 1996. The FCC is an agency of the United States federal government that was created to regulate all forms of telecommunication inside of the U.S. including radio, television, digital cameras, Bluetooth, wireless devices and a broad gamut of RF electronics.
EMC certification is an important consideration when purchasing electronics. It ensures that your equipment is safe for use in an office environment.
EMC stands for “electromagnetic compatibility,” and it’s a measure of how well your equipment interacts with other electrical devices. For example, if you’ve ever had a cell phone or laptop interfere with your car radio, you’ve experienced EMC failure firsthand. This can be caused by interference from electromagnetic fields generated by the electronic device itself or from outside sources like power lines, computers, and other electronic devices.
If your equipment doesn’t pass EMC testing, it may not be allowed on airplanes or in other sensitive environments such as hospitals or schools.
The Canada Standards Association (CSA) is a voluntary, non-profit organization. It develops and administers technical safety standards for various products, including electrical and mechanical systems. Its goal is to help protect the health and safety of consumers, as well as to ensure that products are manufactured consistently and reliably.
CSA standards are developed through a consensus process involving stakeholders from industry, government, and consumer groups. CSA certification is an internationally recognized mark of product compliance with applicable Canadian product safety regulations.
It means that the manufacturer tested the product against applicable requirements and passed with no nonconformities detected.
RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances)
RoHS stands for the “Restriction of Hazardous Substances” Directive, passed on February 17, 2003, and will be implemented in all EU member states by 2006.
This directive aims to reduce the number of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (EEE). The RoHS Directive applies to four main groups of hazardous substances: Lead (Pb), Cadmium (Cd), Mercury (Hg), and Hexavalent Chromium (Cr(VI)). The RoHS Directive prohibits the use of these substances in EEE unless they are explicitly exempted.
For example, certain lead compounds are exempt from the ban if they are contained in a glass or ceramic materials. Specific uses of mercury compounds are also exempt, such as those used as stabilizers in alkaline batteries.
SAA Approvals is accredited by the Joint Accreditation Service of Australia and New Zealand (JAS-ANZ), as a third-party certification body. SAA Approvals is also gazetted by the NSW Office of Fair Trading Department of Commerce as a Recognised External Approvals Scheme.
SAA is also accredited by the Queensland Government to issue certificates under the RECS scheme which are uploaded to the EESS/RCM database. This allows us to issue certificates for regulated electrical equipment that has been proven to comply with the safety requirements of the applicable Australian / New Zealand standard, and is recognised everywhere in Australia and New Zealand.
A good manufacturer ensures customer’s safety
So at this point, we’ve learned what a safety certification is and the value behind it. The question remains: What safety certifications are the most important for you?
And the answer to that question will likely vary from product to product. But in for chargers and adapters:
- Look for CE and CCC.
- Look for UL if it’s required.
- Look for FCCand RoHS if they’re applicable.
We provide the best value.
