3 Worldwide System for Conformity Testing and Certification of Electrical Equipment (IECEE) Aim and Objectives History Organization & Structure Facts Conclusions Target Development and Outlook

4 Worldwide System for Conformity Testing and Certification of Electrical Equipment (IECEE) History

5 Worldwide System for Conformity Testing and Certification of Electrical Equipment (IECEE) Global Trade & Conformity Assessment  Local – Regional – Global  Conformity assessment, perceived slow, steady, bureaucratic  Conformity assessment models were developed in isolation  Due to increased global trade, manufacturers identified the need to find improvements in efficiency and profitability

6 CAB 5/67 Global Trade & Conformity Assessment  Factors creating barriers to success -Limited harmonized standards -Multiple inspection / audits -Lack of uniform conformity assessment requirements  New certification programs and marks developing

7 CAB 6/67 Schemes, Arrangements and Agreements  Accreditor to accreditor arrangements  CAB to CAB agreements  Government to government MRAs  IECEE CB Scheme

8 CAB 7/67 The CB Scheme, originally operated by the CEE (International Commission for Conformity Certification of Electrical Equipment), was integrated into the IEC in 1985 as the CB Scheme of the IECEE. Today this Scheme is called “Scheme of the IECEE for Mutual Recognition of Test Certificates for Electrical Equipment (CB Scheme)” IECEE CB Scheme

9 Worldwide System for Conformity Testing and Certification of Electrical Equipment (IECEE) Aim and Objectives

10 CAB 9/67 The aim of the CB Scheme is to provide Manufacturers seeking worldwide market access through third party certification Marks, the most economic and cost effective procedures within the best certification time frames. Aim of the IECEE

11 CAB 10/67 Objectives of the IECEE CB Scheme  A global solution for a global market  Provision of a framework for global conformity assessment  Use of IEC standards to facilitate international trade  Elimination of multiple testing  Elimination of multiple quality audits connected to approvals  Increased access to market by covering national differences  Reduced time to market  Increased confidence among acceptance interests  Reduced costs – increased trade  Acceptance by regulators

12 CAB 11/67 IECEE CB Scheme  19 product categories ranging from Information Technology and electronic equipment, household, medical equipment, lighting to EMC, and Photovoltaics but 60% of activity is concentrated in these three areas:  Household appliances  Office & IT equipment  Electronics / entertainment

13 Worldwide System for Conformity Testing and Certification of Electrical Equipment (IECEE) Target

14 CAB 13/67 The Ideal Target One test One certification One mark

15 CAB 14/67 Today’s Achieved Target One test One international certificate One or more marks as needed

16 Worldwide System for Conformity Testing and Certification of Electrical Equipment (IECEE) Organization & Structure

17 CAB 16/67 Standards in the IECEE Scheme  The scheme is based on use of IEC Standards  Member Bodies must declare differences if National Standards are not fully harmonized with the IEC Standard  A country that has not implemented the IEC Standard can not participate in the Scheme for that standard/category

18 CAB 17/67 The Schemes are  Product-based, not system-based  Use of IEC standards but structured to accommodate national differences  Membership based  Governed by members  Self financing  Daily operation by IEC staff  Overseen by CAB
