Products made in China need to be exported to other countries around the world, and they usually have to meet local safety certification standards before they can be sold in the region. Because each country has its own national conditions, different geographical environments, ethnic cultures, living habits and national protection awareness, this has prompted most countries to formulate a set of product standards suitable for their national conditions to protect their citizens. Safety and environment. In this way, as long as the products are exported to different countries, the standard requirements are different. Therefore, a third-party testing agency has emerged to conduct product testing and certification in a fair, authoritative and objective way to evaluate whether the exporting country meets the standard requirements.
Do you know which safety certifications your products need to pass in other countries? What do these certification marks mean? Let's take a look at the various internationally renowned certification marks and their meanings in the current global mainstream, and see that your product has passed the following certifications.
