“Having a CSA-recognized printed label drastically reduces hours of manpower, weeks of testing and thousands of dollars for converters to get a product to market,” says Donald Berlin, Durables & Global UL/CSA project leader at Avery Dennison. “This in turn allows for the potential for converters to generate more business faster.”
Manufactured products, such as durable goods, consumer electronics, automotive and medical devices, are tested to rigorous safety and performance requirements before applicable certifications are awarded. These tests must be completed by independent testers such as CSA Group. Having an approved label gives assurance to OEMs and converters around the world.
“Having our durables label portfolio listed with CSA Group reflects Avery Dennison’s continual commitment to supporting our North American customers in bringing value to the bottom line,” adds Berlin.
