While the global marketplace continues to demand safe and high quality products from manufacturers, North America provides significant opportunities to launch and sell products. The right product certification mark is key to opening doors to markets in the United States and Canada, and working with a knowledgeable, reliable and recognized third-party certification body and testing agency is your first step.
Since 1992, CSA Group has been recognized by the Occupational Safety and Health Association (OSHA) as a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) to test and certify products to over 400 U.S. standards, including those from ANSI and UL.
CSA certification marks have earned the trust, recognition, and acceptance of governments, regulators, leading retailers, and consumers. They are also among North America’s most widely recognized and accepted certification marks with leading manufacturers, inspectors, Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ), distributors and retailers, architects and engineers, and specifiers. Among these accepted marks are the CSA and CSA C/US marks – the marks you need for access to USA and Canada – and the CSA Star and CSA Flame, the leading marks for gas-fired products in North America. In addition, we have a long history in working with other standards development organizations (SDOs) around the world participating in international and harmonized standards activities, understanding the complexities of compliance and the necessity of required testing processes.
Simply put – our experience and recognition in the Canadian and U.S. certification and testing landscape runs deep.
Working with technical experts who leverage their solid understanding of mandated standards and compliance requirements, we can help you obtain the appropriate certification mark with the reliable, and predictable service that you have come to expect from CSA Group.
