Product Safety Testing

EMT has extensive experience in testing electrical products in accordance with various safety standards, including EN 60950-1-x for Information Technology Equipment (ITE), 61010-1-x for Laboratory and Test & Measurement equipment, as well as IEC 60601-1-x for Medical Equipment.

We can also perform testing for the laser standard EN60825-1-x and help you with FDA approval.

One of our biggest strengths is our ability to work with clients from the start by identifying where they intend to market their products. Once EMT has identified what safety/certification marks our client needs, EMT will prepare a test plan to satisfy the respective standards and requirements. To summarize this, EMT will save clients time and money, but most importantly, headaches and stress.

EMT has the relationships in place to offer various agencies safety marks including CSA, UL, and TUV.

EMT also offers testing against the LVD (Low Voltage Directive), Radio and Telecommunications Terminal Equipment (R&TTE) Directive or others for Self Declaration against EU countries.

Our key product categories include:

The EU Lot 9 is the implementing legislation for server and online data storage products for the ErP (European Parliament) Directive. The requirements in Lot 9 begin on March 1, 2020 for all products sold in the EU from that date forward.

ErP is Directive 2009/125/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 21 October 2009 establishing a framework for the setting of Ecodesign requirements for energy-related products. ErP is a CE mark regulation, and the CE mark on a product indicates compliance with the appropriate implementing measure for the ErP regulation.

Here is a summary of the specific Ecodesign requirements for servers and online data storage products:

  1. Minimum PSU (Power Supply Unit, a.k.a. internal AC to DC power supply module) efficiency and power factor Limits.

    Note: Testing may be waived if Energy Star and/or 80 PLUS compliance test report for the PSU is available.

  2. Material efficiency (ease of disassembly for repair or reuse) requirements.
  3. Availability of a secure data deletion tool for 8 Years after the last sale.
  4. Availability of firmware (including security updates) for 8 Years after the last sale.
  5. Specific information about the product on the website for 8 Years after the last sale.
