The CB Scheme is an international agreement that provides electrical and electronic manufacturers with a simplified path to obtaining worldwide market access. The CB Scheme is supported by over 50 member bodies organized in the IECEE and over 60 national certification bodies. A product being certified in a CB test lab according to the harmonized standards will receive a CB Report that may be submitted to a national certification body.
The CB Scheme is a benefit to manufacturers since it can save time, save money and reduce the amount of testing needed. Once a CB test report and CB test certificate are in hand, a manufacturer can typically receive approval from national certification bodies in a streamlined and cost-effective method that often does not require additional testing.
The CB Scheme covers various categories of devices including but not limited to medical, lighting, consumer electronics, measuring and IT. Components covered by the CB Scheme include batteries, cables, capacitors, connectors, controls, cords, power supplies, switches and transformers.
Through partnerships with various CB test labs, Keystone Compliance consultatively assists manufacturers in obtaining CB Schemes. Please contact us to discuss how we can assist you with your CB Scheme needs.
