Small Domestic Appliances (SDA)

Upright vacuum cleaner

From the moment we wake up in the morning, we use a variety of electronic products to make our lives easier and more creative. While enjoying new products, new experiences and high technology, have you paid attention to their safety and quality? Undoubtedly, electrical products may fail and have a serious safety risk. Have their designs met safety standards, such as electrical insulation, materials, structures, electric leakage, short circuit, overload, overheating? Product safety certification can solve these problems, and provide confidence to your customers! Putting your products on the market without testing, considering the potential damage to your property, your customers and your brand reputation, this is obviously not advisable.
