According to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), in general, work performed by U.S. EMC laboratories is accepted elsewhere in the world. The FCC accepts work done by EMC laboratories outside the United States on an equal basis with work done by U.S. laboratories. In those economies with which there is a recognition agreement with a U.S. accreditation program, testing and inspection is generally accepted. In addition, as noted above, both NVLAP and A2LA accreditation programs are open to foreign-based applicants, as are a number of other U.S. programs. Both NVLAP and A2LA have a mutual recognition agreement with Canada for product testing.
There are mutual recognition agreements with Brazil and People's Republic of China through the Technological Laboratory of Uruguay. Agreements have been concluded with other countriesunder the ministry of Livestock. There are cooperation agreements with other agencies on specific products.
There are no agreements with other organizations for mutual recognition of testing and inspection.
