CSA International signed a reciprocal product testing agreement to provide testing services in North America and Asia, on behalf of the Association for Electrical, Electronic and Information Technologies of Frankfurt, Germany (VDE) for products destined for European markets. A similar reciprocal agreement allows VDE to conduct testing to North American standards on behalf of CSA International.
The VDE Mark is based on the worldwide acceptance of VDE testing performance and capabilities as well as on the international recognition of VDE Certificates. It helps to ensure an easy entry to the global markets and it indicates conformity with the VDE standards or European or internationally harmonized standards, and confirms compliance with protective requirements of the applicable European Community Directives.
The VDE Testing and Certification Institute is accredited at a national and international level for the testing and certification of electrotechnical equipment, components, and systems. Testing is conducted for safety, electromagnetic compatibility, and other characteristics such as usability.
