Helping you reduce product design costs, eliminate expensive rework, and deliver safe, reliable and compliant products to market.

As technology grows, laws and regulations defining product compliance constantly change. Manufacturers, retailers and suppliers are pressed to innovate quickly in order to create and maintain compliant products.

Regulations governing product compliance evolve to ensure that products do not represent harm or hazards to users and will perform as intended according to applicable standards. Implementing practices that address compliance considerations throughout the entire product development lifecycle can minimize design errors, reduce time to market and reduce costs prior to product release.

Our suite of Compliance Assistance solutions help you implement best practices and compliance considerations throughout product design to mitigates risks, alert you to potential compliance concerns throughout a product’s lifecycle, and increases your chances of compliance without multiple rounds of testing and product redesigns.

Maximize your product lifecycle

With the accelerating pace of technology, a single design error can cause manufacturers to miss ideal market entry timeframes and be outpaced by competitors, increasing production costs and limiting market share. As new technologies continue to drive standards’ progression and inspire market growth, we continue to commit ourselves to providing the global marketplace with expert compliance solutions. If compliance is not engineered in from the start, expect to endure major delays as the product is redesigned, jeopardizing time to market and product viability; significant extra costs for rework and increased product cost and possibly even team dissension.
