RSQ Test Labs | Product Reliability, Safety, and Compliance Testing
1. You have been developing a new type of electro-mechanical product and you need a solution for improving your product design, qualifying components, troubleshooting issues, and more generally reducing technical and regulatory risks
2. You don't have the budget to set up your own team and purchase the testing equipment.
Only established companies usually have the budget for this, so you’re not alone.
3. A famous international testing house sells testing, but isn’t interested in providing guidance or solutions to your issues.
Those groups have organized their labs like mass production units. They love doing repetitive, standardized work. There is very little managerial or engineering work to spend when a work order already corresponds to a procedure, trained labor, and equipment. They want to sell testing, not guidance or solutions.
4. Local testing labs only have limited ability and their knowledge of your market’s compliance regulations is far from certain.
Many of them are set up to do the work larger labs want to subcontract -- simple and repetitive work only. Others may have more of a full offer, but will they understand the intended use of your product, and will they be familiar with the compliance requirements of the countries where you will sell? What happens if they are wrong?
5. Your own manufacturer might have an incentive not to disclose manufacturing issues they find during testing.
Maybe you are working with a large manufacturer that has its own internal lab. But is there a chance they might cover up some manufacturing issues when they review failed samples? Maybe they might be tempted to suggest only simple tests, so you don't make their lab very busy? Relying solely on them is not wise.
You need a lab that not only can perform and manage your testing needs but also can provide professional advice and run complex analyses where needed. A lab specializing in electronic products sold in Western countries, run by an experienced team of engineers.
