The process of obtaining global type approvals and country-specific certification services can be complex, bureaucratic, time-consuming and expensive. As regulations and approval schemes constantly evolve, planning takes patience and understanding.
Since legal approvals are often mandatory, they must be followed, and approvals depending on the country where you want to market your products, and the process may vary from basic self-report or type approval to more complex approvals.
Approving a product for a market or another country means implementing the regulatory plan and related requirements of each country. It is important to accept and plan product approvals as they may require specific product labels, translations, or statements in the user guide. You may need an importer or local representatives within the country. You may need factory or individual shipping inspections. Depending on the country, local importers, subsidiaries or representatives may need to be included in the approval process. Finally, the testing lab may have testing requirements that overlap with other countries that allow scale economies. So you will need an accredited laboratory for short. Ignoring these variables can be costly and add lag to the market, leading to loss of revenue and shrinking of market share.
Mandatory product approvals are required for your products to go smoothly during customs passes and to obtain licenses for processing in the country to be marketed.
Voluntary product approvals are required to meet customer, distributor or service provider purchase requirements. Voluntary approvals can help you build marketing advantage and show proof of compatibility over other suppliers.

Type Approvals - the classic type approval process for radio products applies to most countries, including North America, South America, Central America and the Caribbean, Asia and Africa.
A radio regulatory authority or a designated private certification body evaluates documents and test reports and finally issues a certificate. Tests should be followed according to internationally accepted standards or national requirements.
Classical type approval provides less flexibility than its own declaration. Even minor product changes may require the participation of local authorities. In such cases, expert knowledge is invaluable to find the right balance to address changes in certified products worldwide.
Regulations for electronic devices with telecommunication functions have special measures to deal with products for personal use. Any product that transmits data over Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or radio should be brought in compliance with the legal standards and specifications of those countries. Self-notification is the most convenient way to handle type approval for radio products and short-range devices.
Self-reporting is possible in the EU, Australia and New Zealand. The full legal responsibility for the accuracy of their testimony rests with the manufacturer or the person who launched a product with a wireless connection. It is best practice to test it in an accredited laboratory to make sure your statements are truly correct.
However, company policies and varying levels of quality management lead to different interpretations of applicable regulations and standards. In cases where the company does not have the necessary information, external consultancy may be recommended. In particular, changes in legislation should be constantly monitored. Using experienced external consultants can help you avoid unpredictable risks.
