Our speed, expertise, and global network of labs will get your IT equipment into more countries - in less time - than ever before.
IEC/EN/UL/CSA 60950 "Safety of information technology equipment" is one of the world’s most widely-used electrical product safety standards. Thousands of manufacturers rely on this standard to show that their products meet the safety requirements for markets around the world. It is one of the relatively few standards to be harmonized by standards-writing bodies globally to make the process as efficient as possible for manufacturers.
Intertek has helped IT equipment manufacturers certify products to this standard for years, and our ETL Listed Mark can be found on product labels and packaging across North America. More than 1,000 listings currently exist in our ETL Directory under the 60950 standard alone - whether it’s a simple Listing, a Recognized Component, or a Classification.
Large, global manufacturers such as Ericsson, Raytheon, Alcatel-Lucent, Eaton, HP, Cisco, Toshiba, Panasonic and many more trust Intertek to test and certify products that generate billions of dollars in revenue. Small and mid-sized manufacturers rely on us to help them understand the global requirements, test and certify their products, and in some cases they rely on our certifications to add credibility to new technologies.
Ensuring that we can do it quickly and accurately is of the utmost concern to both Intertek and our clients. This is why we have 31 laboratories around the world accredited and approved to test to this standard. Whether the manufacturer is in China, Japan, Korea, Europe, US or Canada, we offer our clients local services in their own language to help them gain certification.
As IEC 62368-1, the new hazard-based standard for information technology and audio/visual equipment, begins to replace IEC 60950 and its localized versions, Intertek will be ready to help clients bridge to the new standard.
We’re committed to helping manufacturers get products to market quickly so they can be more competitive. Contact us today to learn how we can help you.
