Gérald -

If they're asking and you're not sure, you don't have the credentials. They should have either a contract with a compliance agency (such as UL, TÜV, or other similar entity) or an internal Compliance Engineer who certifies that their products and documentation meet whatever requirements are necessary for the country into which the products are being sold.

Our Compliance Engineers review our documentation as well as the physical products, and they obtain certificates of compliance from various government entities. For example:

UL - Underwriters Laboratories - is usually required for compliance certification in the United States.


CSA - Canadian Standards Association -

CE - CE mark for the EU -

Do NOT, under any circumstances, put yourself in a position where you could be legally responsible for the safety standards and compliance of the company's products and documentation.
