No matter what industry you are part of, the certification of your product is an elemental step towards its being sold. But did you know that it is just as important to have your certification label certified as well?
The certification label is just as important
A product that is certified by either CSA or UL goes through a stringent process to ensure that it will perform safely under pre-defined conditions. In addition, it needs to carry a certification label that will withstand exactly the same conditions as the product, and remain affixed to it for the duration of the product’s lifetime.
Some products of course, function under pretty extreme conditions. Indeed, they may be exposed to year round weather and UV rays or to extreme heat and cold. They may even be designed to function in contact with various chemicals.
Pre-approved label material to ensure certification
This is why you need to choose your certification label manufacturer carefully. Here at IMS, we create labels based on combinations of materials that are pre-approved by CSA or UL. These materials include labels, adhesives and inks. What’s more we can then can pre-print these labels, or arrange for you to print them onsite.
The fact that they are pre-approved vastly reduces the chances of failure during certification. Moreover, IMS can work very closely with its customers to create a custom label to ensure a smoother certification process.
It’s the final product that gets certification
It’s important to reiterate here that even if your product has components that are all certified, it is the final product, including its certification label, that must past the test. The product is expected to perform, and the label is expected to remain legible and well affixed regardless of conditions, which can include scratching, heat, cold, humidity or exposure to chemicals.
