Unharmonized transition requires that you build a new market launch strategy with greater efficiency. You can reduce your sample requirements, certification turn-around time, cost and time to market by building a market access strategy to optimize the transition to 62368-1 from 60590 and 60065.
The global market is not harmonized on the transition dates and the regulatory landscape will continue to consistently evolve for at least the next two years. By understanding how this evolution will unfold, you can leverage existing 62368-1 certification, or optimize testing timing to minimize the number of certifications required across the suite of countries that you are selling your products into. UL global market access experts monitor regulatory changes daily and can guide you to an easier and faster route to market your high-tech products.
If you already have certified to 62368-1, meet with a GMA expert to see how to leverage that certification for future market launches. If you haven’t certified yet, start today. There are less than 100 days before the December 20, 2020, deadline to switch to 62368-1 in the European Union and eight other global countries. Don’t take the chance of being non-compliant on new product submittals. UL’s Global Market Access team can assist you in Information Technology, Audio/video and Telecom products compliance strategy to meet all your market needs.
Please have ready when you call any current certification numbers and list of countries you plan to market too. The following items can help expedite the quote to order process, if available: model numbers, technologies used in the product, user manuals, product specification sheets and harmonized shipping code.
