TORONTO, Sept. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CSA Group, a leading global provider of product testing & certification services and standards development, announced the accreditation of its Korean laboratory as an official Certification Body Test Laboratory (CBTL) for ICT, Audio/Video and medical devices.

This lab specializes in testing and certification services for electro-medical and laboratory equipment such as imaging devices, home healthcare medical equipment, EGC monitoring devices, microscopes, sterilizers, patient monitoring devices, and many more.

With the new IECEE CBTL status, testing at CSA Group's Korean laboratory assists customers to obtain fast and efficient product approvals for global markets by receiving multiple national safety certifications for their respective products through harmonization of technical requirements across nations. This reduces the need for multiple test plans in different countries.

"As the Korean medical device and IT industry has grown significantly, we are happy to support domestic companies in these areas to receive accelerated and convenient access to global market," says Kiseok Cho, Korea Operation Manager, CSA Group. "Through local testing conducted in our Korean laboratory, manufacturers can now gain access to over 50 countries worldwide. This strongly facilitates obtaining national test certificates, saves time and costs through simplified acceptance and helps manufacturers to get their products to patients and healthcare professionals all over the world in a highly efficient manner."

The laboratory also provides services for commercial and household appliances, as well as HVAC/R products. In addition, CSA Group Korea offers Sustainability and Energy Efficiency Verification Programs to North American standards.


Operated by the IEC System of Conformity Assessment Schemes for Electrotechical Equipment and Components (IECEE), the CB Scheme is a multilateral agreement for the mutual recognition of product safety test results among participating countries and certification organizations around the world. It enables manufacturers to obtain multiple national safety certifications for their product.
