Managing compliance testing is a very labor intensive task that most companies simply do not have the bandwidth or expertise to manage and it is one of the many value add services that CIARA offers its clients. Whether your product is shipped domestically or globally CIARA can manage your compliance needs.

Once the production sample is completed and signed off by the client the compliance testing will begin. The length of time it takes to receive certifications is dictated by what certifications are required.
