Take your wiring devices to North American and global markets with confidence

Did You Know?

  • As the demand for alternative energy increases—especially wind and solar—wiring and wiring devices are needed that can perform through challenging temperatures and weather.
  • Wiring needs have greatly increased as a result of the high demand for electrification of homes, increased investment in power distribution, and growth in the household sector in developing countries.

From residential to commercial and institutional usage, wiring devices are needed for projects of all sizes and scope, in markets all over North America and the world. They may require the right testing and certifications — both to meet local market compliance requirements, and to assure customers in those markets that they’re buying wiring devices that have been thoroughly checked against requirements for safety and performance.

CSA Group offers testing and certification you may need to gain access to your target market, throughout Canada, the U.S. and beyond. Our mark is widely recognized and accepted by safety inspectors, code officials and Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJs), safety experts and workplace committees, leading product manufacturers, and major product distributors and retailers. Make sure that customers in new markets see it on your wiring devices.
