   Evaluation and Analysis       The supplier offers evaluation and analysis of products. 
   Failure Analysis / Troubleshooting       Failure analysis is the evaluation of a product and product failure to determine the underlying cause of the failure. Failure analysis results are used to correct design flaws. Troubleshooting is diagnostic or corrective maintenance performed to correct an existing problem. This differs from preventive maintenance, which is performed proactively in order to prevent system problems. Failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) is a specialized methodology for analyzing failures. 
   First Article / Contract QA       First articles are pre-production or pilot run samples evaluated to assure conformance to the specified standards, procedures and contract requirements. Contract quality assurance (QA) providers sample, inspect, test or evaluate production samples, sites or facilities, processes or procedures.  First article inspection and third party QA services are often requirements for some medical or aerospace production or government contracts.

Ferrography or wear particle analysis is used to monitor lubricant or machine condition. 
   Optical Testing       The supplier offers optical testing including haze and transmission.  Haze is caused by the scattering of light within a material, and can be affected by a molecular structure, degree of crystallinity, or impurities at the surface or interior of the polymer. Haze is only appropriate for translucent or transparent materials, not for opaque ones. Haze is sometimes thought of as the opposite of gloss, which would properly be absorption of an incident beam. However, the haze test method actually measures absorption, transmittance and deviation of a direct beam by a translucent material.

   NRTL Mark (UL, CSA, TUV, etc.)       Suppliers certify or test to UL, ETL, CSA or other NRTL standards required to obtain an NRTL Mark. The laboratory can issue an NRTL mark if the laboratory is part of an NRTL or is an authorized agent of an NRTL. NRTLs use their specific “marks” (e.g., UL, S Mark, CSA, etc.) to certify products.  NRTLs publish standards that other laboratories use to test and qualify products to. Products that bear a CSA Mark have been tested by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) and meet applicable standards for safety and/or performance. These standards are written and administered by organizations such as the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), Underwriters Laboratories (UL), and CSA International. CSA Marks may appear alone or with indicators. CSA Marks that appear alone are used with products certified primarily for the Canadian market, to the applicable Canadian standards. CSA Marks that appear with the indicators “C” and “US” or “NRTL/C” are used with products certified for both the U.S. and Canadian markets, to the applicable U.S. and Canadian standards. The GS Mark indicates that an electrical, mechanical or electro-mechanical product was tested and complies with the minimum requirements of the German Equipment and Product Safety Act (a.k.a. GPSG).  The GS Mark (Geprüfte Sicherheit, meaning Safety Tested) is a licensed mark of the German government and may only be issued by an accredited product safety testing and certification agency. The PSE Mark is a mandatory mark required on Electrical Appliances in Japan as authorized by the Electrical Appliance and Material Safety Law (DENAN). The Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) administers the PSE Mark system. Products regulated are categorized as Specified Products (SPs) or Non-Specified Products (NPSs) according to the DENAN law. Specified Products (PSs) should meet compliance standards, and be certified by a METI accredited Conformity Assessment Body.  Non-Specified Products (NPSs) should meet compliance standards, but do have to be certified by a METI accredited Conformity Assessment Body.  The Gost R certification system was established in 2004 by the Russian Federation government for to provide national standards and requirements for the accreditation of certification bodies of products or quality systems; and testing and calibrating laboratories. NOM standards are the official Mexican product safety requirements.  Electrical, electronic, medical, wireless and telecom products sold in Mexico must be tested to the national, mandatory NOM standards by an accredited Mexican laboratory. Testing may be conducted by a laboratory outside of Mexico if it has a laboratory-to-laboratory mutual recognition agreement with an accredited Mexican laboratory or by an accredited lab in a country free-trade agreement with Mexico. CCC stands for China Compulsory Certification and requires manufacturers in 132 product categories to obtain the CCC Mark before exporting to or selling in the Chinese market. The CCC Mark became effective on May 1, 2002. The two previous systems (CCIB and CCEE or Great Wall) caused a great deal of inconvenience for enterprises dealing in both domestic and foreign trade by carrying different national quality standards. The S Mark is a European safety mark valid throughout the EU and a recognized symbol of safety since 1926.  The S Mark is a symbol of electrical safety and evidence to authorities that an independent body has independently tested and certified a product’s compliance to applicable European safety requirements. The cE mark is the official marking required by the European Community for all Electric- and Electronic equipment that will be sold, or put into service for the first time, anywhere in the European community.
