A World of Connections – SGS ‘Global Access Program (GAP) for Electrical & Electronics Products’ white paper.

SGS releases new version of ‘Global Access Program for Electrical & Electronic Products’ on the most current guidance on International Type Approval (ITA).

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND, March 16, 2021 / — SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company, is pleased to announce publication of the latest version of its ‘Global Access Program (GAP) for Electrical & Electronics Products’ white paper.

With the continuous growth of worldwide trading business, and more countries and regions establishing their own type-approval systems, the GAP white paper has become an essential reference for Electrical & Electronics (E&E) manufacturers and importers looking to reach new markets quickly and efficiently.

The latest 48-page document incorporates a number of countries and regions that have set up type-approval systems since the document was first published in 2015, reflecting growing global ambition to:
• Protect the environment – focusing on the design, production and disposal phases of the life cycle of electronic products
• Protect the health and safety of the user and any other person
• Maintain protection requirements regarding electromagnetic compatibility in accordance with Electro-Magnetic Compatibility (EMC) regulations
• Maintain the integrity of radio networks by ensuring that radio equipment is constructed to use only the spectrum allocated to terrestrial/space communication and orbital resources, so as to avoid harmful interference

Ben Lv, Deputy Director EEC & Auto, SGS, said: “In today’s fast-moving global market, manufacturers and importers of electrical and electronics products will struggle to access new markets if they fail to meet the challenge of mandatory legal requirements. That’s why we’re delighted to launch the latest version of our Global Access Program white paper which ultimately gives manufacturers and importers the benefit of a consolidated global service and a short cut to new target markets.”

Written by a panel of International Type Approval (ITA) experts, the white paper explores and investigates the latest array of national and international standards including the CB Scheme, CE Mark, GS Mark, FI Mark, CEBEC and ENEC standards, as well as a plethora of certification schemes around the globe. It highlights each standard’s intentions, geographic application and marking process whilst alerting organizations to the pitfalls of non-compliance when seeking to reach new target markets
