Global Approvals & Consulting

Austest Labs works closely with other Approval Specialists entities to provide a complete certification service with offices and agents in many Asian and Latin-South American countries.

The Approval Specialists companies are dedicated professionals experienced in telecom and IT approvals for world markets. We have a proven 25+ year track record in obtaining certification and approvals for a diverse range of products, from Optical and DSL modems, wireless communication devices including RFID, ZIGBEE, bluetoothTM, 3/4G IoT, DECT, Wireless Lan and components such as power supplies.

Through our relationships with governments and agents, we deliver compliance services for high technology products in markets ranging from South and Latin America, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and Europe. In-country compliance folder compilation and agency services are also provided for countries such as Singapore and Malaysia.

We sidestep trade barriers and other obstacles that slow your business growth and know your product life cycles are short, so we assist by getting products to market quicker than your competition.  Trade barriers exist in every country, some are obvious and government endorsed, others are more subtle or culturally based.  In-country technically literate expertise is therefore essential to market access for your products.

Our Principals, senior project managers and technical experts represent several decades of combined experience in the ITE and telecommunications regulatory and compliance industry.

With primary offices in Los Angeles, Singapore, Seoul & Sydney, with other offices and agents spread throughout the world, we provide localised support critical to market success. We have invested significant time and resources in developing and maintaining key relationships with the government agencies and laboratories. Our technical expertise and country-specific regulatory know-how ensures fast and efficient results.

With literally thousands of approvals processed on behalf of small, medium and Fortune 500 companies, we determine the shortest path and where possible, use existing test data that a manufacturer may have wherever possible. As an example, for countries such as Japan, we may be able to use your existing test data to obtain JATE certifications.

In country approval assistance is needed to ensure your product gains acceptance ASAP and we’ve set up an approvals infrastructure in many countries to facilitate this, Unlike others, we’ve actually sought out and employed individuals that have experience in telecom and IT products, not just admin staff. This allows us to genuinely support you when in-country testing is required or technical issues need to be addressed.  Please note that so as to maintain compliance to the impartiality requirements of ISO/IEC 17025, our consulting services do not include our company modifying or making changes to products undergoing electrical product safety testing at our labs.
