IECEE CB Scheme
The CB Scheme facilitates the acceptance of test reports when applying for national safety certification of electrical products in the different IECEE member countries.
Also, it is today largely used between business partners in international trade for proving basic safety compliance of their electrical/electronic products.
Why Choose the Nemko CB?
- Nemko has for many years been a leading issuer of CB Test Certificates, especially for IT products.
- With a Nemko CB Test Certificate, manufacturers have a basis for achieving acceptance in most countries worldwide.
- CB Test Certificates are today universally recognized also outside the member countries, and also in addition become the prime document for demonstrating product safety in international business-to-business trading of electrical equipment.
The scheme covers the full scope of low voltage electrical equipment for which IEC standards exists. These products typically include:
- IT equipment
- Audio/video equipment
- Household appliances
- Medical equipment
- Installation materials
Other facts about the CB Scheme:
The CB Scheme is based on IEC standards, but at Nemko it normally also includes the European Standards (EN). It may then also be used as documentation for Declaration of Conformity and CE marking to the European Directive.
In addition, the products may be tested to national differences to the IEC/EN standards, in order for the CB test Certificate to be readily accepted in individual countries.
Manufacturers use this scheme to get both national certificates in various countries and to show that their products comply to relevant standards.
There is no annual license or fee for having the CB certificate.
IECEE is a part of IEC, the International Electrotechnical Commission.
