Nemko Direct for Household
Nemko Direct is a single point of contact for worldwide market access for Household products.
Nemko Direct supports you in completing the certification process by handling all the paperwork and certifications through our worldwide network. We cut through all the red tape and give you access to the countries you want in the shortest possible time. Alternatively, we can conduct a compliance analysis, and if no certificate is necessary, issue declarations that certificates are not needed.
How Nemko Direct works:
A large number of countries still have mandatory certification for electrical equipment and telecom/radio appliances. This means that the products must be approved in the respective country before they can be imported and sold. Nemko has made special arrangements with approval bodies and authorities involved in most of the countries concerned, to avoid, as far as possible, that the products have to be re-tested and re-inspected in each case, and thereby minimizing both delivery time and cost.
Special service for special markets
Some countries have more comprehensive rules than others; e.g. Russia requires, in addition to safety and EMC, special hygienic certification for a number of products. We try to look into the company’s current situation, always searching for the optimal certification solutions. We have translated relevant regulations and standards into English, and we have employees speaking different languages, including Russian and Chinese.

How long is the processing time?
Nemko has one of the shortest lead times available in the market. The delivery time is, in most cases, based on availability of CB and EMC documents.
