Product Certification for Canada
Product Conformity & Certification for Canada
Products marketed in Canadian territory must comply with the Canadian product safety standards. The Canadian Standards Council (SCC) regulates, audits and accredits third parties or organizations such as CSA, Intertek, Met, SGS, TÜV to elaborate standards or perform evaluation and testing tasks in terms of safety and energy efficiency to meet the interests of the Canadian market.
Canadian legislation requires compliance assessments of all products sold in Canada through the delivery of relevant documentation to ensure that the products in question have been evaluated in accordance with the requirements of the Canadian law on safety and energy efficiency. The SCC encourages the creation of voluntary standards that facilitate the compliance of products and their procedures to ensure quality and safety.
