Gaining market access involves the same steps for every manufacturer of measurement instruments. Proper support for this process will speed up the market access of your product. With its many years of experience in the admission process, NMi has acquired an international reputation which guarantees fast market access.
How quickly you obtain market access is subject to various factors, like the tests to be performed and the procedure to use. NMi is constantly working to optimise different aspects to ensure rapid market placement of your product. This includes:
During testing, NMi keeps you informed about developments, highlighting any potential problems regarding certification. This gives you an opportunity to make any adjustments and prevent unnecessary delays to the testing process. During the testing of complex measurement instruments, special customer rooms with Internet access are available so that modifications can be implemented immediately.
Correct interpretation of rules and regulations is not always straightforward. Through our experience and participation in various committees, we have access to valuable information which can be incorporated in your design specifications. Moreover, as an independent party, NMi is able to use available documentation to execute a “design review”. This provides insight into whether certification will be successful and into the measurement uncertainty. Potential obstacles revealed during testing can thus be removed.
NMi has developed a model to support your Product Creation Process with respect to market access. This can speed up your market access in the development and initiation phase as well as in the market introduction phase.
NMi’s worldwide reputation ensures widespread and often undisputed acceptance of its test reports and certificates. This reduces the number of inspections and requests for information, saving time for the authorities. We are also expanding our acceptance by extending our existing Mutual Recognition Agreements and establishing new agreements with emerging countries about marketing your products.
Ultimately, you will take our measurement reports and/or certificates into the wider world. It is therefore important to guarantee their quality to guarantee fast market access. Through our extensive experience on the international market, we know the requirements imposed on reports and certificates. Before sending you the report or certificate, we therefore check the accuracy of the data and report.
NMi is active in various committees, including OIML, Welmec, NoBoMet, EN and Cenelec.
We are therefore aware of all the latest legislation and our expertise is regularly requested for the development of rules and regulations. Supported by our advice on planned changes, you are in a position to market a future-proof product. However, we are also interested in your developments and innovations. NMi updates you on the relevant legislation and tests for your measurement instrument of the future.
NMi invests in good contacts with its customers as well with the authorities. Our Mutual Recognition Agreements with countries including Japan, China and Australia ensure that NMi’s test results are accepted for access without the need for additional tests. Moreover, our relationships with the various authorities ensure that we are always aware of changing requirements. Such agreements are vital for developing new markets and speeding up market access.
