Assessment

What we do

Why is conformity assessment needed?

Conformity assessment allows to determine if a product or service is what it appears to be and if a system performs as it should. It provides insights into safety, quality, efficiency, effectiveness, the economic use of materials and energy, if a product fits and operates correctly with other products, and its effect upon the environment (pollution, noise).

  • Governments want to protect their populations from unnecessary risks.
  • Insurers want to know that equipment will not cause loss of life or damage.
  • Buyers want proof about a product's or system's safety, performance and reliability.
  • Users of equipment and consumers want to be able to trust the product or service they are purchasing.

The IEC provides a framework that supports all types of conformity assessment, and allows for testing to be transparent, predictable, comparable and affordable.
