CCA Notification of Test Results

The CENELEC Certification Agreement (CCA) is a European agreement on mutual recognition of test results. The purpose of the agreement is to ensure that the results of a test performed by a CCA member in one country will be accepted by CCA members in other countries. SIQ is both a recognized National Certification Body (NCB) and a recognized Testing Laboratory (CBTL) within the CCA Agreement.

The CCA NTR is a document certifying that a product meets the requirements of relevant standards and that a pre-license factory inspection has been carried out. The CCA NTR is issued together with a pertinent test report. The tests are based on European standards (EN) in force in the European Union and in the member countries of the European Free Trade Association (EFTA).

A manufacturer that holds a CCA NTR can apply for national approval in any of the CCA Agreement member countries. The main difference between the procedures for obtaining a CB Certificate and a CCA NTR is that a pre-license factory inspection must be carried out before the CCA NTR is issued, and regular annual factory inspections are carried out after the CCA NTR is issued.
