In accordance with the IECEE’s announcement, HKCC has been authorized to issue CB Test Certificates, which are recognized by around 60 IECEE Member Bodies under the IECEE CB Scheme, representing access to the global markets.
Operated by the IECEE, the IECEE CB Scheme is an international system for mutual acceptance of test reports and certificates dealing with the safety of electrical and electronic components, equipment and products. It is a multilateral agreement among participating countries and certification organizations, which aims to facilitate trade by promoting harmonization of national standards with international standards and cooperation among accepted NCBs worldwide. As a result, a single CB Test Certificate allows worldwide market access. Its significance is it largely overcomes the international trade barriers caused by various standards and criteria in different countries.
The Hong Kong Certification Centre (HKCC) (formerly known as The Hong Kong Safety Institute or HKSI) was established in 1998 as a product certification body in Hong Kong. Through its one-stop product certification service, clients are able to obtain speedy approval for their products both in local and overseas, thus saving time and cost.HKCC is accredited by China National Accreditation Service for Conformity Assessment (CNAS) and Hong Kong Accreditation Service (HKAS) for particular scopes of product certification service, as well as a Recognized Certification Body (RCB) of the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) in Hong Kong.

Meanwhile, HKCC will continue to provide professional, efficient, and reliable services to electrical product manufacturers, importers, distributors and retailers alike to improve product quality and global competitiveness.
STC has been providing face mask testing services since the SARS outbreak in 2003. The STC microbiology tests for disposable face masks are duly accredited by HKAS. In the past, STC has successfully provided relevant testing services to various organizations including government departments.
Since the first outbreak of COVID-19, the demand for disposable face mask testing has increased dramatically. In response to the surging demand for face masks for the protection of the local community from COVID-19 transmission, more face mask factories have been established. Along with increasing face mask supply, there is accompanying customer expectation that face masks coming on to the market will meet international quality and safety standards, such as, ASTM F2100, EN 14683 and AS4381.
Meanwhile, STC has invested over $1 million in upgrading its testing equipment to enhance face mask testing capability and deliver faster testing services. STC is fully committed to supporting Hong Kong by providing the local face mask manufacturing sector with the best service in terms of timing and convenience.
