Webinar Description

International laws dictate that products meet safety standards with a significant emphasis on Electrical Safety. Machinery, Communications Devices, Information Technology, Measuring Equipment, Medical Devices and many other products have specific safety standards prescribing requirements for various elements associated with safety. Electrical, thermal, fire, mechanical radiation and other hazards are considered for almost every product that is placed on the market.

The webinar series will present details on test and evaluation methods for the more common tests required for international approval. The discussion will address test and evaluation methods along with approaches to incorporate safety control measures into your design. This series offers critical information for product designers, compliance management professionals and testing industry professionals involved with electronic systems development.

This multi-part series of one-hour webinars, presented at regular intervals throughout the calendar year, provides detailed focus on evaluating products, mitigating issues, documentation and understanding the reason for the requirements.

Although the standard provides the basis, this course delves into what and why along with the how. Understanding the evaluation process brings forth items that the designers must consider.

Webinar attendees will receive a recording of the presentation and the presentation slides for reference long after the event.

Who Should Attend

  • Product and program managers that need to understand the safety compliance requirements;
  • Compliance engineers responsible for technical safety details supporting the product design;
  • Laboratory managers and test personnel responsible for developing and executing the test/evaluation programs;
  • Auditors and witnesses to gain insight on how tests are tailored for necessary variance from the standard.
