CSA (Canadian Standards Association) tests products for compliance to national and international standards, and issues certification marks for qualified products. Certification marks tell customers and users that a product has been evaluated by a formal process involving examination, testing and follow-up inspection so that it complies with applicable standards for safety and performance. The CSA-certification document has been prepared, approved and published by CSA International, and contains rules, requirements or procedures for an orderly approach to a specific activity. CSA standards include product design requirements, test methods, classifications, recommended practices and other considerations. This certification is designed to meet many standards that define safety requirements intended to reduce the risk of personal injury.
