Virtual L&L - Critical Challenges in Achieving Full Conformity for IoT Devices

Join this Virtual Lunch & Learn to learn about the common challenges IoT device startups struggle with during various aspects of the compliance processes. Many startup IoT manufactures that make custom devices underestimate the design-for-compliance principle ahead of the myriad of tests to pass. And for those who go the private label route, the ability to know if a supplier certificate is legitimate, or if their test report is accurate, or if the new label is legal for a given country.

This Lunch & Learn will share design-for-compliance methods to employ that increase your chance of being and staying in conformity in any particular country.

Rob Holt began working for an EMC Test Lab when he was 18. After learning and fulfilling every role at that first lab, he settled into project management, 25 years at various labs, Rob started a 10 year run as a Sr. Compliance Engineer directly for manufactures. Overall, Rob uses his 36 years in the industry to cover management of every slice of the HW Conformity spectrum.
