have been specifically designed to support manufacturers,
test laboratories and consultants seeking type approval
for telecommunications equipment and other ITE. You
want your products tested and approved as quickly
and as smoothly as possible. Time to market is what's
at stake. Through our integrated network, we offer
the leading turnkey solution for fast, efficient,
end to end approvals support -- from consulting and
preparation to certification and labeling advice.
End to End Service
We take our clients' products from the initial step
of determining approval requirements and the best
approval strategy, through to preparing the approval
applications and offering on-site engineering test
support when in-country testing is required. We then
follow through with the local regulatory agencies
to see that certifications are issued as quickly as
We begin to deliver value often before we even start
compiling technical documents on a product. Because
we know the approval schemes in each of our markets
so thoroughly, and because we focus on telecommunications
equipment compliance, we can lend expert advice on
approval requirements and help our clients to develop
the most efficient and flexible approval strategies
for their products. We eliminate the need for our
clients' staff to become experts on the ins and outs
of each market's approval process and regulations.
Full Engineering Testing
Approvals often require in-country testing of the
equipment. We have the ability to ensure our personnel
to have proper technical expertise to support equipment
under test. This helps to minimize delays in testing
and gives our clients a measure of security in knowing
that their approvals are in good hands.
Our experienced personnel work with our clients' staff
to understand the set-up and configuration of the
products, and then go on to support the products through
testing. In many cases test support is completely
transparent to our clients. When there are test failures
or other problems, our local engineers work closely
with our clients' design or support engineers to resolve
the issue. This allows manufacturers' in-country sales
staff to concentrate on their primary goals, not the
type approval process.
Strong Local Expertise
Relationships are the key to success in many countries.
We put a lot of effort into maintaining our very strong
working relationships with the regulating agency representatives
in each market we cover. Because we submit so many
applications in each market, we enjoy very good professional
relationships with the individuals at the regulatory
agencies. Once testing is completed it's often crucial
to continue to interface with the local agency to
avoid any unnecessary delays in issuance of the type
approval certificate. Again, we keep chasing them,
freeing up our clients' sales engineers' time to do
Throughout the process of the approvals we support
for our clients, we provide constant progress information.
We track all of our projects through a central server
that our local offices access and update via our secure
intranet. It allows us to tell a client the status
of each of the projects we're handling for him or
her at any given time. We provide regular status reports
that put at our clients' fingertips all the information
needed for planning launch and shipping schedules.
This gives our clients the ability to manage the approval
projects for many products across many markets at
once with only a small staff time commitment.
No Surprises Fee Structure
Typically we offer our service on a fixed fee per
approval basis. That is, rather than leaving the final
cost of obtaining approvals a question, we charge
a flat fixed fee per application we are to prepare
and support in each market. Our fixed fees do not
include the application and testing fees charged by
the local regulatory agencies or other direct project
expenses, but we can estimate these for you based
on the details of specific equipment.
The world's leading telecommunications equipment
vendors already recognize the value in our service
and entrust their approvals to us. We would be delighted
to have the opportunity to support your telecom approvals.
