    This latest recognition sits alongside the company’s accreditation as an EU Notified Body for the RED Directive and as a TCB by FCC (USA), putting Applus+ in a position to certify wireless products for three of the world’s key markets.

    Applus+ has been named Foreign Certification Body (CAB Identifier ES0001) by the Canadian department of Innovation, Science and Economic Development (ISED), formerly Industry Canada (IC).
     
    This recognition will help Applus+ to expand its portfolio of wireless and IoT services. From now on, Applus+ will be able to carry out the mandatory certification process to access the Canadian market.
    Canada’s conformity process involve product testing and certification by a testing laboratory accredited for ISO/IEC 17025 and a certification body accredited for ISO/IEC 17065 that has been recognised by ISED.
     
    The ISED designation of Applus+ as a certification body sits alongside the company’s prior status as a Notified Body (no. 0370) for the EU’s Radio Equipment Directive (RED) and as Telecommunications Certification Body (no. ES0002) by FCC (USA). Applus+ was already accredited to carry out conformity testing to European, US and Canadian market standards.
