IECEE CB Scheme Testing and Certification Services

We can test electrical and electronic products under nearly all of the 19 CB Scheme product categories

ABOUT the CB Scheme

The IEC System for Conformity Assessment Schemes for Electrotechnical Equipment and Components (IECEE) Certification Body (CB) Scheme is the world’s first international system for the mutual acceptance of product safety test reports and certificates for electrical and electronic equipment, devices and components.

Based on the use of internationally-accepted product safety standards, the CB Scheme relies on a global network of CB testing laboratories (CBTLs), who are responsible for testing products to applicable technical standards. Product test results are then submitted to national certification bodies (NCBs) in CB Scheme member countries, who can authorize legal access to CBTL-tested products without additional testing.

benefits of the CB Certification Scheme

Presently, there are more than 50 CB Scheme member countries around the world:

Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Kenya, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russian Federation, Serbia and Montenegro, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom, United States of America.

Manufacturers using the CB Scheme can potentially gain access to every CB Scheme member country without the need for expensive, duplicate testing.

Further, CB Scheme applicants are often given priority consideration by NCBs since no additional testing is required.
