EMC laboratory of TÜV Rheinland in Yokohama (Japan) receives authorization from the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) / local tests in South Africa no longer necessary / Processing times for manufacturers and dealers significantly shorter.
The South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) has authorized TÜV Rheinland Japan‘s Global Technology Assessment Center in Yokohama. TÜV Rheinland Japan is the first company in the TÜV Rheinland Group to be authorized by the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) outside South Africa. From now on, manufacturers or exporters wishing to enter the South African market with their electrical products can obtain proof of "electromagnetic compatibility (EMC)" directly from TÜV Rheinland.
"Customers requiring “SABS EMC Certificate of Compliance' now have one more option - EMC-testing at TUV Rheinland Japan, besides the option of testing at local labs" explains Claus Draga, expert for international product approvals at TÜV Rheinland. "Manufacturers and exporters can apply to us for both the necessary approvals and the associated tests of electrical products, such as the NRCS (National Regulator for Compulsory Specifications) Letter of Authority (LoA) on product safety.”
In the near future, manufacturers can also look forward for laboratories in Nuremberg and Greater China (Shanghai and Taiwan) to provide the necessary EMC approvals for SABS too. In contact with TÜV Rheinland's market access services experts, the relevant approval steps for a specific product are defined and explained - worldwide, at the nearest TÜV Rheinland location.
