To maximize market opportunities, manufacturers seeking a competitive advantage should engage with a conformity assessment body early to reap financial rewards in many aspects of technical compliance projects, or even projects not aiming for final certification. This will allow manufacturers to have a risk mitigation plan in place to know most of the risks up front. There may be issues down the line where a supplied piece of equipment fails a mandated test due to a manufacturing or material defect. A lot of the compliance work is a documentation review. If this is done earlier in the process, precious time between final testing and product launch can be saved.
