Component Acceptance

CSA Group is ready to help your business adapt and maintain product compliance by offering solutions that help you get to market efficiently.

The COVID-19 pandemic and recent inflationary pressures have presented some unforeseen challenges for the global manufacturing supply chain, ultimately leading to supply chain disruptions. The emerging challenges call for manufacturers to build in flexibility and additional capabilities in their supply chains to drive transformation for today’s crisis and prepare for a sustainable future.

For many manufacturers, three key challenges in the supply chain stand out:

  • A shortage of components and materials from regular suppliers
  • Uncertainty regarding the certification status of a sourced component
  • High transfer costs of moving certification files from one provider to another

Therefore, to meet their delivery time to market, manufacturers must consider alternative sources of components and certification organizations that are flexible in accepting components certified by other organizations.

CSA Group is ready to help your business adapt and maintain product compliance by offering solutions that help you get to market efficiently.
