What is CSA?

CSA international stands for Canadian Standards Association. CSA International is a part of the CSA Group. It is a provider of certification and therefore a thorough product testing for various plumbing, mechanical, electrical and a plethora of other products. These certification marks gather recognition in the U.S, Canada and various countries throughout the world.CSA Logo

If a product has a CSA International certification mark, then it indicates that the product or service used, has undergone a thorough testing, pertaining to U.S or Canadian standards. These standards are so high that markets all over the world believe a CSA certification mark to be the ultimate testament to the “tested O.K” condition of the product in question.

Let us discuss in brief what this entails to you as the customer as well as the manufacturer. CSA International marks are primarily a seal of assurance to the customer. If a product has passed the CSA standards then the customer can be at peace regarding the quality as well as the condition of the product.

For manufacturers on the other hand, having their products certified by a CSA mark may entail a easy pass into the North American markets. CSA International marks are recognized by many North American market regulators. If you go browsing in the famous retail stores or product distributors around town then you are sure to come across a large number of products bearing the CSA International mark.

So, in the end CSA International is working for the customer, by allowing only the high quality suppliers enter the market.

CSA International performs product testing for International and North American markets against standards including but not limiting to those of the Underwriters Laboratories (UL), Canadian Standards Association (CSA) and American National Standards Institute (ANSI). The standards of a number of other agencies are incorporated, the aim being to assimilate the best of both worlds.
