Approval Specialists are a dedicated group of professionals experienced in telecom and IT approvals for world markets.
We have a proven track record in obtaining certification and approvals for a diverse range of products, from ATM and frame relay access devices, Optical, DSL and PSTN modems, RF communication devices including bluetoothTM, 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.
We sidestep trade barriers and other obstacles that slow your business growth. We know product life cycles are short and assist you 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. Therefore, in-country technically literate expertise is 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 Auckland, Los Angeles, Singapore, Seoul & Sydney, with other offices and agents spread throughout the world, we provide localised support critical to success in these markets.
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 hundreds 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. In 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. We've set up an approvals infrastructure in many countries to facilitate this, but unlike others, we've actually sought out and employed individuals that have experience in telecom and IT products, not just administration staff. This allows us to genuinely support you when in-country testing is required or technical issues need to be addressed.
