Solution: Certified Body (CB)-Scheme
Product approval in the CB Scheme
A customer (product manufacturer) commissions TÜV AUSTRIA as CBTL to test its product according to the CB Scheme for certain countries.
TÜV AUSTRIA tests it and prepares a CB test report, which is sent to the Austrian Association for Electrical Engineering (ÖVE). The latter then issues the CB certificate.
On the basis of these three parts, i.e. the product, the CB test report and the CB certificate, the customer can obtain the national certification (safety mark) for his product in the desired countries for which it has been tested.
CB Scheme – CBTL for OFF, TRON, MEAS
The Certified Body (CB) Scheme is the world’s first system for the recognition of test reports on the safety of electrical and electronic products.
A manufacturer using this scheme can obtain national certification in all CB member states.
Due to TÜV AUSTRIA’s membership in the internationally recognised associations CCA (CENELEC Certification Agreement) and CB (Certification Bodies Scheme), foreign test marks (in the case of CB member states) can also be obtained on the basis of the TÜV AUSTRIA test report.
