UC Certification

As an accredited testing laboratory, we’ve helped thousands of manufacturers complete safety testing for their products and achieve UC certification.

1. UC certification

UC certification, formerly UCIEE (União Certificadora - Instituto de Ensaios e Certificação em Engenharia Elétrica) certification, is a safety certification in Brazil divided into tow types of certification: mandatory and voluntary. Products that comply with Brazilian standards and other technical requirements must affix the INMETRO logo and the logo of a accredited third-party certification body on the product nameplate or outer packaging along with the certification body code (OCP).

2. More about UC certification

    • Electronic medical equipment;
