World-Wide Regulatory Strategy

What is the best strategy for gaining Type Approval in a large number of Target Countries and at the same time reduce the number of Emissions, Immunity, Product Safety and Telecom tests.

World Wide Regulatory Strategies are instrumental in defining a minimum subset of Regulatory Type Tests when entering a large number of Target Countries. Thus one set of Emissions, Immunity, Product Safety testing can be conducted to support the multiple Telecom Type Examinations. When entering a large number of Target Countries, even Telecom Type Examinations can be reduced. Designing a product to a minimum subset of Regulatory Standards at the onset, reduces the total time to design and enter multiple Target Countries.
