Certification schemes designed for specific country’s markets and product types require a whole series of specific quality tests, which generally focus on safety and environmental protection, but also can be aimed at elevating a certain country’s reputation as a world class products market, as in the case of Saudi Arabia’s SASO CoC.
These tests are mandatory and require accredited Third-Party testing verification as part of the certification process. You are certainly aware that compliance is necessary, but as a forward-thinking business, you want to go even further.
Once you have established what tests your products need to achieve all relevant certifications, your next consideration is: what quality standards do you choose to test your product against? Your choice of tests may be based on specific customer demands, and/or the qualities, features and functionalities you want to attach to your product--and ultimately, your brand.
For example, a pair of sunglasses may not require polarized lenses - but perhaps you are in the business of bringing the best polarized eyewear to the market. Choosing the right testing methods for cutting-edge quality is an expression of your product and your brand’s identity, and it justifies the extra cost that a consumer is willing to pay for products that don’t just pass the test, but set the standard.
Between product certification and your own performance quality standards, the battery of necessary tests can seem overwhelming. The answer to that problem lies in a unified testing strategy and collaboration with a Lab Testing and Inspection Service, one that is both accredited to issue market-specific certifications and experienced in testing a wide range of products against valid, industry-proven performance specifications.
The quickest route to your designated market is through a testing strategy that values organization and the shortest possible turnaround time from placing a test or inspection order to receiving verified results.
