Approve IT can help. Our team of experienced specialists helps you successfully manage all aspects of worldwide radio compliance from technical design to full compliance testing and documentation. We can also represent you before compliance authorities in more than 180 countries and legal jurisdictions and obtain radio approvals on your behalf.
Regulatory compliance aimed at protecting the environment, or “green compliance,” is expanding rapidly.
Direct cooperation between government organizations and consumer/industry groups has also grown. At the national, state/provincial and even city levels there are new stewardship programs being created targeting product disposal requirements. In a growing number of countries, the responsibility of the manufacturer does not end at the point of sale or even during the consumer’s usage, but rather may extend until the product is responsibly recycled or disposed of.
While these regulations mainly originated in the EU and USA and are still most strictly enforced in these countries, the rest of the world is quickly catching up. In many cases, most notably with RoHS, countries are adopting the exact requirements of the EU and then requiring their own national approval using the EU data as evidence of compliance.
Other countries are developing their own unique national standards and programs that require a separate evaluation against the local standard. With so many new country requirements being introduced, it is difficult to know what is really required, what is voluntary and which products fall under each scope.
Approve-IT works closely with our partner labs to assist with your Tier I environmental testing and evaluations. Once the Tier I approvals are complete, our global team helps you manage your international environmental approvals.
Approvals we commonly manage include:
- CONUEE (EE, Mexico)
- NRCS (EE, South Africa)
- ESMA RoHS (UAE)
- Customs Unions (EAC) RoHS
- Ukraine RoHS
We also extensively research and provide valuable information for WEEE and other mandatory and voluntary recycling requirements.
