The CB Scheme, short for the “Certification Body Scheme,” is an international program for the testing and certification of electrical and electronic products. It was established by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) to promote global harmonization and facilitate the mutual acceptance of test reports and certificates among participating countries. The scheme is recognized in over 50 countries and ensures that products meet the required safety standards in each country. The IECEE CB Scheme operates on a system of mutual recognition. This means manufacturers who obtain the IECEE CB Scheme certification can easily export their products to different countries without the need for expensive and time-consuming retesting.

Why is the IECEE CB Scheme important?

The IECEE CB Scheme plays a crucial role in ensuring the safety and reliability of electrical and electronic equipment. By providing a standardized testing and certification process, it helps to prevent the sale of unsafe or faulty products, which could potentially harm consumers or damage property.

The IECEE CB Scheme also helps to facilitate international trade, by reducing the need for multiple rounds of testing and certification in different countries. This can save manufacturers time and money, while also making it easier for consumers to access a wider range of products.

Benefits of the IECEE CB Scheme

There are many benefits to participating in the IECEE CB Scheme:

  • (1) Global market access: the CB Scheme provides a streamlined process for manufacturers to obtain multiple national certifications through a single evaluation. This reduces costs and time-to-market, enabling easier access to global markets.
  • (2) Consumer safety: the CB Scheme ensures that products meet rigorous safety standards, protecting consumers from potential hazards and ensuring product reliability.
  • (3) Mutual recognition: participating countries recognize CB Test Reports and Certificates, eliminating the need for duplicate testing and certification processes.
  • (4) Simplified compliance: manufacturers can leverage the CB Scheme to demonstrate compliance with national regulations, avoiding the need for additional testing and certification.
  • (5) Exploring the sustainable aspect: while the CB Scheme primarily focuses on product safety, it indirectly contributes to sustainability efforts. By ensuring that products meet energy efficiency standards, the scheme helps reduce energy consumption and environmental impact. Additionally, the CB Scheme promotes the use of environmentally friendly materials and manufacturing practices, aligning with the principles of sustainable production.

How does the CB Scheme work?

Under the CB Scheme, manufacturers can choose an accredited testing laboratory like GTG Group to evaluate their products for compliance with relevant international standards. These standards cover aspects such as electrical safety, electromagnetic compatibility, and energy efficiency. Once a product successfully passes the tests, the manufacturer receives a CB Test Report and a CB Certificate.
