Product Certification Procedure in Australia

Product Certification Procedure

For many types of products, components, and accessories seeking entry to key markets across the world, pre-market clearance and certification is a legal necessity. Manufacturers also opt to have their goods examined in accordance with the technical criteria of voluntary standards in order to fulfill certification requirements.

Companies can differentiate their goods from rivals by submitting them for further optional testing and certification, demonstrating their commitment to providing buyers and customers with high-quality, safe-to-use items. Suppliers, retailers, regulators, and consumers may be certain that an independent group has assessed a product’s production process and decided that it meets specified safety, quality, sustainability, or performance requirements.
