Producers in China can now export to Europe more quickly
SHANGHAI and GUANGZHOU, China, March 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Testing laboratories DEKRA Shanghai and DEKRA Guangzhou have both been ENEC approved for the category LITE. ENEC is a European Mark for electrical products which demonstrates conformity with European safety standards. The scheme complements CE marking by validating compliance independently. DEKRA is one of the first certification bodies to achieve ENEC approval for its Chinese laboratories.
ENEC is the high quality European Mark for electrical products which demonstrates compliance with European standards (EN). With the passing of the ENEC assessment for both the Shanghai and Guangzhou locations, testing for ENEC certification can now take place on multiple locations in China. This helps China-based manufacturers of products or components export more easily and more quickly to the European Union. In addition, manufacturers based in China can now test and certify locally without having to ship their products abroad.
ENEC certificates not only give access to many markets in the European Union, but to the European Free Trade Association (EFTA, under which fall Switzerland, Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein) as well and increasingly to Eastern Europe. It gives manufacturers the assurance that an independent testing body has verified that products comply with the relevant standards. ENEC certification is relevant for manufacturers of LITE products and components, amongst which are lighting components, luminaires, lamps and LED lighting, drivers, and control units.
