About our international service.
There are many terms used to describe this service. Some government agencies use specific terms such as "type approvals", "product certification", "international homologation" or "product homologation", but they all indicate that you are meeting the local agency requirements for demonstrating that your specific electrical/electronic product meets their designated criteria and is legal to import for sale and use in their country.
Access to international markets is key to product success. With ACB's distributed team of experts in every hemisphere, we provide real-time support for product compliance and approvals from pole-to-pole and from east-to-west.
For developing markets, the key is to understand what the process is, what is the process, timeframe and how best to manage the complicated world of international approvals.
