Our Product Safety Testing Services
RN Electronics offer a basic safety assessment consisting of three parts; visual inspection, dynamic tests and standard analysis to help you to self-certify. At the end of the assessment, we provide a report which contains tests results and offers advice on how to overcome any shortcomings, if applicable. This test report is added to your Technical Construction File (TCF) and can be used to self-certify your product with the requirements of the Low Voltage Directive and the UK equivalent Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations.
The Radio Equipment Directive (RED) requires all wireless equipment for the European market to comply with the safety elements of the RE Directive regardless of its voltage range. Likewise for the UK Radio Equipment Regulations. RN Electronics can provide testing towards these safety requirements.
