Join us if you have any involvement in: organizing, testing, managing or consulting in the compliance industry. The workshop will cover regulatory approvals for electronic and radio devices.
The Workshop will review the compliance process and examine each step in detail, making it suitable and valuable for complete beginners or seasoned, experienced certification professionals.
We focus on the most important topics which face the industry today, such as the integration of radio modules; critical to many manufacturers today, especially in the M2M and IoT industry. We explore the limitations of permitted changes and modifications to certified equipment and the complexities of product families of multiple models and the combination of co-located radio devices.
ACB is one of the world’s most active Wireless Certification Bodies. We understand product compliance and certification, and have a clear insight into the most important topics for the industry. We know how to avoid mistakes during approvals for wireless devices. We will explain the authorization processes and how to get products to market as quickly and efficiently as possible. https://acbcert.com
D.L.S. is a leading testing laboratory in the EMC, Wireless, Safety and Environmental disciplines. Their team has hands-on knowledge of test techniques, mitigation and design for commercial, MIL, automotive and aerospace devices and systems. https://www.dlsemc.com
In addition to the regulatory compliance administrative processes, we cover testing requirements and permitted test methods. This topic is important for test labs, manufacturers and consultants. Understanding the applicable test requirements and the correct application of those tests affects everyone in the compliance chain. This is important for our test lab visitors and is essential learning for the manufacturers who are ultimately responsible for the accuracy and applicability of the test results.
Our workshops have become famous for their ‘question and answer’ sessions where attendee questions are resolved to find a solution, including guidance on to find the answers to such questions yourselves. Register early to submit questions and influence the workshop agenda.
The interactive environment of the ACB seminars, presented by some of the industry’s best-known experts, is what sets us apart from the other seminars available. This is not simply a marketing presentation of information, this is genuine training on some of the most misunderstood topics.
The information learned at this seminar will progress your career whilst saving your company time and money in testing, certification and important product time to market benefits.
Engineers, program managers, test technicians, regulatory personnel and compliance managers working in EMC, Radio and telecommunications testing and Regulatory Compliance for North America, Europe, Japan and elsewhere around the World.
In addition to the compliance and certification requirements; test engineers, design and development engineers and technicians will benefit from receiving instruction on test methodology from the experts.
As the only independent TCB, we are pleased to provide testing and compliance training for test labs and compliance specialists. The level of attendance by new and experienced EMC and Radio test labs at our seminars shows the industry appreciation for this training and provides interesting, enjoyable and stimulating debates.
Previous year seminars have seen attendance by many of the leading companies involved in the testing and compliance industry. Make sure that you and your company is part of this compliance event; not conspicuous by your absence.
