Safety Thru Design
- Regulatory Consulting:
In addition to product evaluation, STD can provide leadership for your engineering
and management team in developing a strategy for your organizations long-term
regulatory needs and dealing with regulatory organizations such as TUV, VDE, CSA,
UL and EMC testing laboratories.
By utilizing STDs working relationships with engineers at US Nationally Recognized
Testing Laboratories (NRTL), European Notified Bodies and other laboratories, STD
can help resolve many questions and issues.
Regulatory requirements around the world are constantly changing. Identifying
country requirement can be very challenging. STD can assist in identifying and
understanding these requirements.
If your engineer and management team lacks experience with regulatory issue, STD
offers training on product safety concepts and product safety standards.
- Product Safety Evaluation:
STD can evaluate your product, provide test reports and documentation support to
meet European Directives and CE Marking requirements. Commonly applied European
Directives are the Low Voltage, Machinery, Medical, and Pressure Equipment Directive.
Commonly applied IEC or EN standards are 60950-1, 60204-1, 60825-1, 60065,
60335-1, 61010-1 and 60601-1.
STD can also perform a preliminary evaluation to many NRTL standards, NFPA79 and
SEMI® Guidelines to identify major issues before submitting the product for
certification with organizations such as UL, TÜV, CSA, etc.
As part of the evaluation process, most standards will specify required safety
test for products. STD can perform many product safety test using calibrated
