IECEE CB Scheme
IECEE CB Scheme is an International Scheme for mutual recognition of product safety certification between participating countries.

The main objective is to facilitate trade by promoting harmonisation of the national standards with international standards and co-operation among product certifiers worldwide.
SAI Global is the accredited National Certification Body (NCB) for Australia and New Zealand. SAI Global issues internationally recognised CB Certificates that exporters can use to gain local electrical approval in overseas countries.

IECQ HSPM (Hazardous Substance Process Management) QC 080000
IECQ HSPM (Hazardous Substance Process Management) QC 080000 is a framework for the management of hazardous substances control and defines the requirements for establishing processes that identify and control any introduction of hazardous substances into electronic products. QC 080000 was developed using ISO 9001:2000 as the framework. With QC 080000, organisations can implement a HSPM system to cover the key requirements of various global directives (such as RoHS and WEEE) by using a single document.
SAI Global has been approved as a Supervising Inspectorate (SI) to offer third party certification for this new specification.
