iNARTE Product Safety Design Certification

The iNARTE Product Safety Design Certification Program focuses on engineering to reduce types of risk to persons, animals, and property that have to be covered by a formal hazard analysis to meet the requirements of relevant legislation. The purpose of iNARTE’s Product Safety Certification Program is to foster technical excellence in product safety engineering. This approach establishes technical competency criteria for product safety and enforces these criteria for personnel designing, manufacturing, and assessing product electrical safety. The program benefits the engineering community as a whole by establishing a standard of excellence in product safety engineering that will endure and extend across the boundaries of private and government agencies.
