Microwave Certifications

Norsat is committed to providing high quality microwave communication equipment that conforms to industry performance and environmental criteria.  As requirements for certification evolve, we are responding with a proactive program of ensuring that our products meet evolving standards.

CE, RoHS, REACH Certifications

Certification requirements for microwave products vary by region and country.  CE certification has existed since 1993 and is a key indicator of compliance with EU legislation regarding safety, health, and environmental protection.  RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive) was has been in force since 2006 and is designed to restrict the use of hazardous materials in the manufacture of electronic equipment.   While RoHS focused on limiting 6 substances for some types of equipment, RoHS2 expands the scope of products which require certification and is now a mandatory requirement for CE certification.  Finally, REACH (Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemical Substances) regulations are designed to track the use of over 140,000 chemical substances used in manufacturing processes.
