DEKRA has been accredited as a Certification Body (CB) in Chile by the Instituto Nacional de Normalización (INN) and registered by the Superintendencia de Electricidad y Combustibles (SEC). This SEC recognition enables DEKRA to certify the compliance of products according to the mandatory Chilean electrical safety and energy efficiency regulations.

  • Manufacturers and importers aiming to sell their products in Chile can have them certified at DEKRA.
"We are proud that DEKRA Chile has been recognized as a CB. The new accreditation for electrical safety and energy efficiency broadens our certification services and the solutions we offer our customers to access the Chilean market", says Juan Guamán, Certification Manager, DEKRA Chile.
The scope includes electrical and electronic products, such as household appliances, external switched-mode power supplies, plug adapters as well as portable luminaires, and will be extended soon.
“The recognition of our entity in Chile as a CB is an important milestone for DEKRA. It also strengthens our portfolio of Global Market Access (GMA) services to provide one-stop solutions to our customers. We continue extending our product certification capabilities in the Americas and are already accredited for several certification schemes and programs, for example, in Brazil (INMETRO, ANATEL), Peru, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador and Panama, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua as well as the US (NRTL) and Canada (SCC)”, says César Valencia, Business Line Product Certification Director, Service Division Product Testing at DEKRA. “Our customers also gain access to our TACS4 ONE digital tool to track and manage multiple GMA projects at the same time.”
