Product Certification Marks for Safety, Quality, and Performance

Certification Marks are evidence that a product conforms to applicable safety, quality, or performance standards

Product Certification Marks are symbols or labels that indicate products have been tested and certified to meet specific standards or requirements. These marks are typically issued by independent third-party organizations that specialize in testing and certification, such as Intertek, and are intended to assure consumers that a product is safe, reliable, and of high quality. Certification Marks can be an important tool for manufacturers and consumers alike. For manufacturers, product certification can help to establish credibility and build trust with customers, while also ensuring that their products meet relevant safety and performance standards. For consumers, product certification marks can provide assurance that a product is safe and reliable, and can help to simplify the process of choosing between competing products.

Some of the benefits of using certification marks include:

  1. Builds Trust: Certification marks are a trusted and recognized symbol that helps build trust and credibility with customers. When customers see a certification mark, they know that the product or service has met a certain level of quality and standard.
  2. Ensures Quality: Certification marks ensure that the product or service has gone through a rigorous quality control process, and has been independently verified.
  3. Competitive Advantage: Certification marks can provide a competitive advantage to businesses by differentiating their products and services from their competitors. Customers are more likely to choose a product or service that has a certification mark over one that does not.
  4. International Recognition: Certification marks are recognized internationally, which can be beneficial for businesses that export their products or services. Having a certification mark can help businesses to build trust and credibility with customers in global markets.

For more than 100 years, Intertek has guided its clients through the challenges of product certification, including programs of ongoing factory inspections, making the process faster, simpler and more efficient. In most markets, conformity to local requirements is mandatory before products can be sold. In other instances, it can be a powerful marketing tool that helps build confidence throughout distribution and end-user channels.
