Regulatory Requirements

Prevas has broad experience of regulatory work and certification activities from many different areas. We are updated and can give advice on how to meet the requirements. In some areas we have highly specialized competence e.g. in EMC and medical technology requirements.

The official regulations governing product requirements are often changed and updated. The new legislative framework (NLF) will affect many of the relevant directives. Keeping a close eye on future requirements, and prepare products to meet them, will reduce development and certification costs.
