If you want to market an electronic system for commercial or industrial applications in North America or Canada you need a Canadian Standards Association (CSA) certifciate to testify that your product conforms to all relevant safety standards of the North American market. The CSA develops and maintains more than 3000 standards and regulations in terms of safety, design or performance and also acts as a nationally recognized testing laboratory. Professionals consider the process for obtaining the certificate as very demanding. All the better that ies obtained it at the first attempt for the development of an OEM computer for a world-renowned manufacturer of audio equipment.
Billions of products worldwide are marked with the registered and accredited CSA mark. The quality mark can only be issued by a the CSA Group or otherwise authorized agency. Christoph Cremer, Head of Production & Quality Assurance at ies, is pleased about the certification: "The CSA Group is famous for its strict criteria. We are pleased that through the outstanding cooperation in this project we were able to produce a great solution on the one hand and immediately receive the CSA certification mark on the other." In the past ies successfully achieved certifications for all kinds of international standards in various industries.
