The CB International Scheme makes it possible to acquire conformity marks from certification bodies in different countries, for electric and electronic products and components, based on the CB Certificate that recognises testing
The CB scheme is an international system created within the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) to assess the conformity of electric and electronic products and components, which facilitates the recognition of testing carried out between the different National Bodies to acquire the conformity marks.
AENOR has signed this multilateral agreement that covers 53 countries across five continents.
It is a certificate issued by a national certification body (NCB) that is a member of the scheme after the products at issue have been tested.
AENOR currently issues CB Certificates for:
Energy efficiency for various domestic appliances
AENOR can issue CB Certificates for the following products:
Domestic appliances, in accordance with IEC 60335 series standards
Lamps and associated equipment in compliance with IEC 60598, IEC 61347, IEC 61558
