What exactly is CB testing?

The CB Scheme is the world’s first truly international system for the mutual acceptance of test reports and certificates by its 57 participating member countries. Dealing with the safety of electrical and electronic products and components, it is overseen by the International Electrotechnical Committee for Conformity Testing to Standards for Electrical Equipment (IECEE).

How does the scheme work?

The CB Scheme helps you to obtain multiple international certifications from a single certified testing body.

  • A single point of product testing for efficient global market access
  • Global acceptance of test reports leading to national certification in CB Scheme member countries
  • Unilateral acceptance of test reports in many developing countries yet to join
