The simplest way is to engage a 3rd party testing company, such as HQTS. Some manufacturers self-test and/or rely on local testing labs for certifying their products. However, there is no guarantee these labs, or their equipment, are reliable. Nor is there any guarantee the results are accurate. In either case, the importer may be held responsible for the product. In view of the risk, most companies opt to use a 3rd party testing lab. HQTS’ 80,00 sf laboratory is centrally located in Hangzhou China, and does a broad range of consumer goods for all regulatory testing requirements.
