The IECEE CB Scheme is the world’s first truly international system for acceptance of test reports dealing with the safety of electrical and electronic products. It is multilateral agreement among participating countries and certification organizations. A manufacturer utilizing a CB test report issued by one of these organizations can obtain national certification in all other member countries of the CB Scheme.
The Scheme is based on the use of international (IEC) Standards. If some members’ national standards are not yet completely harmonized with IEC Standards, national differences are permitted if clearly declared to all other members. The CB Scheme utilizes CB Test Certificates to attest that product samples have successfully passed the appropriate tests and are in compliance with the requirements of the relevant IEC Standard and with the declared national differences of various member countries.
The main objective of the Scheme, is to facilitate trade by promoting harmonization of the national standards with international Standards and cooperation among product certifiers worldwide in order to bring product manufacturers a step closer to the ideal concept of “one product, one test, one mark, where applicable“.
CB Test Certificate is a formal CB Scheme document issued by an authorized NCB to inform other NCBs that a sample of the product tested was found to be in compliance with the applicable requirements. CB Test Certificate should not be used for advertising purpose, however reference to the existence of a CB Test Certificate is permitted.
CB Test Report is a standardized report in a clause by clause checklist format referencing, the requirements of the relevant IEC Standard. The report provides clear and unambiguous results of all the required tests, measurements, verifications, inspections and evaluations. It also contains photographs, circuit schematics, artwork drawings as well as description of the product. Under the rules of the CB Scheme, a CB Test Report is considered valid only if accompanied by a CB Test Certificate.
An NCB can test and evaluate products to national differences of other countries if it has the necessary test equipment and expertise. These additional tests are documented in the Supplements to the CB Test Report which are generally accepted by the recognizing NCBs.
At present, there are 16 categories of products covered by the CB Scheme. The test results can be mutually recognized by 43 members and also be recognized by the countries out of CB Scheme. The members of IECEE-CB Scheme are:
Argentina, Austria, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, The Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, India, Japan, Rep. of Korea, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russian Federation, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom, USA, Yugoslavia, Belarus, Thailand, Malaysia and Mexico

What's CB certificate?
As the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) system for conformity testing and certification of electrical equipment (IECEE), the CB Scheme is recognized in more than 70 countries. It has been established for over 30 years. The CB Scheme aims to bring product manufacturers a step closer to the ideal of "one product, one test, one mark".
Advantages of the CB Scheme
Designed to facilitate trade by promoting harmonization of national standards with international standards.
Open to all countries which have (IEC) membership.
It is the world’s first truly international system for acceptance of test reports dealing with the safety and EMC of electrical and electronic equipment.
All countries which have membership in IEC may join the IECEE. Non-IEC countries may seek IECEE membership under certain conditions. The National Committee of each member country must then designate its National Certification Body or Bodies (NCB) which will be responsible for recognizing and issuing CB Test Reports and Certificates
