We occasionally get questions in support from other new hardware companies or individuals interested in launching a hardware product. We try to share our experiences as much as we can, in the hopes that it might benefit others.
One question that we get answered every so often is how did we take care of compliance testing and certification for our products, most commonly FCC and CE testing.
There is an enormous amount of information about how to do this on the internet, and we recommend taking a look. Here is our recommendation. Ask your manufacturing partners. Odds are if you’re working with a medium sized or large PCB assembly house or complete Electronics Manufacturing Service (EMS), they will have testing partners that they prefer to work with. This is helpful for several reasons, but one of the biggest is the potential for cost savings. In general, we recommend using a testing service in Asia, but you will probably end up paying even less if you use a testing service in Asia through a connection with your manufacturer.
