Approvals Key Benefits

Having a prototype design is one thing but before it can be offered to market it must have the relevant approvals. John Ellison Electronics is a member of the British Standards Institution (bsi) and experienced with gaining product approvals for the following European Directives and International Bodies;
  • Low Voltage Directive
  • Machinery Directive
  • EMC Directive
  • Equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres ("ATEX directive")
  • Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive) ("RoHS directive")
  • Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive ("WEEE directive")
  • Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
Equipment 'Type Testing' undertaken to meet the requirements of;
  • Functional Safety
  • Machinery Safety
  • Electrical Safety
  • Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC)
  • Environmental conditioning
It's quite a list and there are some others not mentioned but all necessary in our line of work. We have an eye on the approval stage even at early concept discussions. Compliance testing is essential for safety and reliability. It also allows the product to reach maximum market penetration. We ensure testing is performed as soon as practical and we're quite happy to invest in an extensive amount so the product can cross as many borders as possible.

We conduct a product risk assessment and draft a test schedule so we can plan a clear route through the directives or standards. Our experience extends to Safety Critical component specification and Functional Safety fault injection testing. Additionally, we own the electrical safety type testing equipment required to prove compliance with the relevant standards.

Our bsi membership ensures we're kept up to date with the latest developments and granted privileged access to their standards library.
