Testing and certification services
Sicom Testing performs many tests and certification services dedicated to different areas.
For all sectors, are performed:
- compliance testing during the certification process
- Pre-testing sessions during the product design phase
- tests for production control throughout the product life
Competence and timing are the main features of all services.
CE Marking: product certification testing according to the European directives, advice on certification procedures and preparation of technical files.
Certification FCC and Canada: execution of tests and preparation of documentation for obtaining the authorization to the markets of USA and Canada.
UKCA marking: testing and verification of product compliance with UKCA regulations (UK Conformity Assessed), preparation of technical files and consultancy on certification procedures.
Development and debug testing: a great experience in contact with the designers aimed to ensure that the product reaches the market fully compliant with all applicable technical standards.
Radio tests: all tests necessary for the certification of radio equipment.
Human exposure and SAR tests: testing of “Specific Absorption Rate” for devices that are used in the proximity of the ear and body and other evaluations of human exposure to electromagnetic radiation.
Safety: compliance testing of electrical and electronic equipment to the essential requirements of the LVD directive.
EMC testing and EMC certification: tests to verify that the equipment is immune to external disturbances and does not produce signals that interfere with other nearby equipment.
Testing of electronic equipment for railway use and on subway: performing tests on electronic products used in trains, on subways and in stations.
Testing of electronic equipment for marine use: testing and solving of functionality issues of electronic equipment installed on boats.
Electrified furniture: Safety evaluation and execution of all the tests necessary for furnishing products that incorporate electrical or electronic parts for their movement, lighting or other.
Ecodesign and energy labelling: These issues are covered by two different European legislative acts and have in common the aim of reducing Community energy consumption., acting on the product categories that are deemed to have the greatest impact.
RoHS: RoHS Directive, codified as Directive 2011/65/EU and amended by Directives 2015/863/EU and (I) 2017/2102, concerns the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment.
Services for retail companies: functional and interoperability tests on consumer products, control sample of quality of production, batch control outgoing and incoming, performance and comparative tests of products to market.
Tests on small and large appliances for domestic and industrial use: testing on household appliances, or for certification of certain product lines, and to investigate specific issues. In this area were also made important studies to integrate all radio technologies in this type of products according to the new trends of the Internet of things (IoT).
Technical investigations to verify the use of patents in products (Patent Infringement): in high-tech products, the technical investigation of use of patents can become really complicated. Sicom has developed some experience in this field, thanks to the collaboration with a network of highly specialized laboratories in specific technologies.
Beta testing: performing of beta tests, for example on localization systems, to verify their correct functionality and reliability.
