Electrical Safety Certificate is a compliance document completed by the licensed electrician performing the electrical work in your home. Only a registered electrical contractor or licensed electrician can issue it.
WHAT IS ELECTRICAL SAFETY TESTING?
Electrical safety testing is carried out to evaluate the potential risks of electrical shocks to customers when using their products.
Evaluating a product for electrical safety usually includes the following tests:
High voltage test (dielectric withstand test) - measures the ability of an electrical product to withstand a high voltage applied between a product’s electrical circuit and the ground.
Leakage current test - evaluates whether current that flows between an AC source and the ground does not exceed a specified limit.
Insulation resistance test - calibrates the quality of the electrical insulation used.
Ground continuity test - ensures that a clear path is available between all exposed metal surfaces and the power system ground.
WHY IS ELECTRICAL SAFETY TESTING IMPORTANT?
Major brands and new start-ups benefit enormously from electrical safety testing of their products:
Achieve compliance with relevant regulation and standards in different global markets
Meet customer demands and demonstrate dedication to safety
Discover and eliminate and problems in the product early on
Avoid expensive product recall
Reduce the risk of expensive litigation should a product cause injury.
