The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) has converted its Conformity Assessment Guide to a continually updated online format available to subscribers. The Conformity Assessment Guide is a document for manufacturers of electrical equipment that sets forth general conformity assessment practices affecting importing and exporting. In addition, NEMA offers market access consulting services through regional offices located in Mexico, Brazil, and China. The intent of both the guide and consulting services is to help manufacturers increase international market access through a better understanding of applicable conformity assessment practices and regulations as well as to offer assistance in managing ongoing certification issues.
