With the advent of global sourcing, CE vendors and retailers face increased product safety and reliability concerns as well as multiple compliance requirements. TUVRheinland, a provider of comprehensive product testing and assessment services based here, said it can address those issues by leveraging more than 135 years of experience in the field.
"As brands seek to go global, companies get put off by compliance issues, and as a result their business never reaches its full potential," the company said in a statement. TUVRheinland, with more than 340 local offices in 60 countries and more than 11,000 employees worldwide, can help vendors and retailers navigate the ever-changing liability and product management landscape to help ensure that their products meet critical safety standards and meet compliance requirements worldwide.
Through the company's supply chain management portfolio, Global Retail Solutions (GRS), companies can have access to resources for everything from design review to WEEE/RoHS compliance, available any time and anywhere worldwide, TUVRheinland said. The GRS portfolio is targeted to the retail supply chain and quality assurance management to enhance safety, efficiency and productivity by providing an all-encompassing line of testing and inspection services for the life of a product from concept to end of life.
TUVRheinland is exhibiting at International CES this week in booth 71238 at the Sands Expo.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
