Conformity assessment of products is done by testing, inspection and certificating. International markets and products require constant observation of products and services. Especially technical devices require long-term testing and quality analysis before they can be introduced to new markets.

Finland offers a range of public and private testing, inspection and certification organizations. They follow the latest directives and safety standards. Reliable demonstrations from various sources are required in order to initiate activities in certain markets.

Finnish Safety Technology Authority, Tukes, maintains and promotes technical safety culture and reliability by monitoring, communicating and researching the field. It is a government supported organization. Tukes carries out safety promoting R&D and draws up legislation with other international institutions.

Several private companies and public organisations also offer testing, checking and certification for companies, individuals and governmental institutions.
