To support the market’s move toward wireless solutions, Intertek delivers enhanced capabilities to guide you through the regulatory approval process for devices containing wireless chargers.

Power cords are being replaced by wireless power solutions, with an increasing number of battery-powered devices using magnetic coils or air-gap transformers for recharging. Wireless charging systems bring added complexities for regulatory compliance, involving Human RF exposure considerations and spectrum protection requirements that are not relevant in wired systems.

Our experts help you identify applicable regulatory requirements for your wireless energy transfer system and communicate with regulatory authorities on your behalf throughout the testing and certification process. We test and certify a diverse collection of inductive charging systems that operate at any number of frequencies and are contained in a wide range of device types.

Intertek has the capabilities and expertise to manage your testing and certification plan. Through our North American facilities we conduct testing ranging from 9 kHz to 40 GHz+ using state-of-the-art equipment, including EMI receivers, Antennas, 3-, 5-, and 10-meter EMC chambers, and more.

We evaluate output power and conduct RF Exposure, EMC and Spurious Emissions Testing to the following specifications:

  • FCC Part 15
  • FCC Part 18
  • IC ICES-001
  • IC Radio Standards Specifications (RSS)
  • EU EMC Directive
  • R&TTE Directive
