In order to export wireless devices, the requirements of the local market’s radio regulation have to be met. Not only do the regulations and standards required by each country’s certification system differ, they are frequently subject to revision. Almost all the countries have mandatory certification systems in place for radio requirements. UL provides regulatory information and certifications for approximately 200 countries/regions, by leveraging the cooperative relationships we have built with global regulatory organizations. From staying up-to-date on the latest information on global radio regulations and gaining knowledge on marking requirements for labels and manuals to obtaining certifications from multiple countries, we have a system in place to accurately and quickly respond to your needs.
