Demonstrate conformance to standards
Certification marks are affirmations that an organization’s product or process has undergone and passed a series of tests meant to demonstrate conformance to an accepted standard, often developed by a recognized standards body.
We typically think of certification marks affixed to products, such as the CE Mark or UL, and these are often required for sale inside the applicable geographic region. However, marks can also be issued in the form of certificates to processes, such as the successful adoption of a quality management system.
Product Certification Marks
From a product safety and quality standpoint, standards bodies are usually local in scope and therefore specific to a country or region. For example, the EAC Mark (Eurasian Conformity Mark) is essential to sell certain products inside the Eurasian Economic Union. Even narrower, India’s Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology requires products obtain India’s Compulsory Registration Scheme before marketing and selling a host of electronic products in the country.
