The CB Scheme benefits product manufacturers and distributors engaged in international trade by providing:

  • A single point of product testing for efficient global market access
  • Global acceptance of test reports leading to national certification in CB Scheme member countries
  • Unilateral acceptance of test reports in many developing countries that are not yet participating in the CB Scheme

The CB Scheme is an international network of product certification organizations in more than 50 countries around the world. The IECEE website at http://www.iecee.org/ contains comprehensive information about the CB Scheme.

Each participating country has one or more organizations accepted by the IECEE as National Certification Bodies (NCBs). UL is one of the largest and most active CB Scheme members, and we operate four NCBs in different countries and over 50 CB Testing Laboratories (CBTLs) to provide local service with global coverage for our Customers.

UL NCBs in Denmark, USA, Japan and Canada, with CBTLs in all major regions, can assess your products to a broad range of IEC standards, with any relevant National or Group Differences. The product categories and standards covered by UL in the CB Scheme are listed on the IECEE Website via the following links: UL (Demko), UL (US), UL (JP) and UL (CA).

CB Scheme Process
  • UL will test your product to all harmonized standards and to any National Differences required for the countries in which you want to market your product.
  • UL will then issue a CB Test Certificate and a CB Test Report that you can use to obtain national certifications in participating countries.
  • You must still apply to the NCBs in your target countries for national certifications, or UL can do it for you. Please note that NCBs have the right to request product samples or ask manufacturers to develop additional data. The CB Test Certificate and associated CB Test Report you receive from UL will minimize the need for additional testing.
  • National Differences are special requirements that the IECEE CB Scheme permits each country to adopt in order to address local safety concerns. UL keeps up to date with the National Differences of CB Scheme member countries, so your products are evaluated to the most current requirements of the countries you target.

      IECEx Certified Equipment Scheme

      IECEx System is one of the IEC’s Conformity Assessment Systems. The IECEx Certified Equipment Scheme is a vast international arrangement established by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) for mutual acceptance of test reports among participating certification organizations in the field of equipment for use in locations with potentially explosive atmospheres (Hazardous Locations). In addition to the evaluation of the equipment design, the Scheme also involves surveillance activities which are based on the requirements that the manufacturer’s quality system have to fulfill.

      The IECEx Certified Equipment Scheme benefits product manufacturers and other stakeholder engaged in international trade by providing:

      • A single point of product testing for efficient global market access
      • Global acceptance of test reports leading to national or regional certification in IECEx System member countries
      • Unilateral acceptance of test reports in many developing countries that are not yet participating in the IECEx System

      The IECEx Certified Equipment Scheme is an international network of product certification organizations in more than 30 countries around the world. The IECEx website at http://www.iecex.com/ contains comprehensive information about the IECEx System and its schemes.

      Each participating country has one or more organizations accepted by the IECEx as IECEx Certification Bodies (ExCBs). UL is one of the largest and most active IECEx System members, and we operate three ExCBs in different countries and two IECEx Testing Laboratories (ExTLs) supported by additional testing facilities to provide local service with global coverage for our Customers.

      UL ExCBs in Denmark, USA and Brazil, with testing laboratories in all major regions, can assess your products to a broad range of IEC Ex standards, with any relevant National or Group Differences.

      IECEx Certified Equipment Scheme Process:

      • UL will test your product to all involved IEC standards and to any National Differences required for the countries in which you want to market your product
      • UL will assess the quality system of the manufacturer producing the involved products
      • UL will then issue an IECEx Certificate of Conformity, IECEx Test Reports and a Quality Assessment Report that you can use to obtain national certifications in participating countries
      • You must still apply to the national ExCB or equivalent in your target countries for national/regional certifications, or UL can do it for you. Please note that ExCBs have the right to request product samples or ask manufacturers to develop additional data. The IECEx Certificate of Conformity and associated IECEx Test Report and Quality Assessment Report you receive from UL will minimize the need for additional testing.
      • National Differences are special requirements that the IECEX Certified Equipment Scheme permits each country to adopt in order to address local safety concerns. UL keeps up to date with the National Differences of IECEx member your products are evaluated to the most current requirements of the countries you target.
      • Additional information can be found on the IECEx Web site at http://www.iecex.com/

      Applying to UL for IECEx Certificate of Conformity:

      Simply contact UL Customer Service via the UL.com website to initiate the process. You’ll be asked to provide UL with:

      • A description of your product, including illustrations, schematics, wiring diagrams, component information, a copy of the marking plate, and any appropriate product details, and
      • The name and address of the company responsible for the product, as well as the list of manufacturing locations

      Tell us also about the countries where you intend to sell your products and UL’s experts can make it easy for you to gain the relevant national certifications for your target markets. Contact us via http://www.ul.com/offerings/hazardous-locations for additional information.

      After successful evaluation of the product according to the applicable IEC standard(s) and the National/Group Differences of the countries you choose, an IECEx Certificate of Conformity and IECEx Test Reports and Quality Assessment Report will be issued.

      The SASO Conformity Assessment Program is the new Saudi Market Access Program that is set to replace the SASO CoC Program. This new program is also called SALEEM.

      SASO has created Technical Regulations and has approved Certification Bodies to conduct based on its ISO/IEC 17065 accreditation, and its geographical location. SASO grouped the shipment origin into 5 regions; Europe, Asia and Australia, Africa, and Middle East. Three UL legal entities (UL LLC, UL International Demko A/S, and UL-CCIC Company Limited) have been granted Conformity Assessment Body Status by SASO.

      UL-CCIC Company Limited scope as SASO Notified Body:

      • Technical Regulation for Low Voltage Appliances and Equipment
      • Technical Regulation for Machinery used in the Food Industry
      • Technical Regulation for Portable Machinery and Equipment
      • Technical Regulation for Textile
      • Technical Regulation for Batteries
      • Technical Regulation for Radio and Telecommunication Terminal Equipment
      • Technical Regulation for Toys

      Products that are tested and proven to conform with the Saudi Technical Regulation are registered in SASO’s online System called Saber, and are issued a Type Approval Certificate, valid for 3 years, by the Conformity Assessment Body. Other Saudi recognized programs such as GSO (G-Mark), SASO IECEE Recognition Certificate (), and SASO Quality Mark (SQM) are pre-requisites, if applicable, to the Type Approval Certificate.

      SASO introduced the three product Risk Levels: High, Medium, and Free Trade. High Risk products must have the SASO Quality Mark (SQM). Medium Risk products are covered in the Technical Regulations and must be tested as per SASO approved standard referenced in the Technical Regulations. Free Trade products only require Self-Declaration of Conformity from the manufacturers and Saber registrations are handled directly by SASO.

      At the time of shipment, the exporters need to acquire the second Certificate in this program, the Shipment CoC, from the Conformity Assessment Body for Saudi Customs clearance. In addition to the Type Approval certificate of the products in the shipment, the exporter needs to submit the shipping and commercial documents to get the Shipment that is valid for that shipment only.
