To remain relevant in the long term, businesses need to look beyond one single national market. The huge North American market in particular is of great importance for growing companies – but it can also be hard to crack.

In our introductory seminar on Thursday, December 15, 2016, in Frankfurt am Main (Germany), you will learn concisely, from examples and practical exercises, how to prepare electrical and electronic product certifications for your entrance into the North American market. You will learn about the relevant data bases and tools to monitor your competitors and to evaluate the market, about the services which will support your market entrance, about certification programs in North America and why a CB report is the passport for the international world of certification.

You will find a platform for networking and to exchange insights, as well as certification experts at hand, who will answer all of your questions.

The seminar will be hosted in German language. For more information, please click here.
