Today the Raspberry Pi Foundation has introduced the Raspberry Pi Integrator Program to help companies develop safe and legal products powered by the Raspberry Pi mini PC.
The Raspberry Pi Integrator Program provides businesses and developers with access to test engineers who worked on our Raspberry Pis during their compliance testing connects the user to a dedicated team at UL who assess and check the user’s product, as well as providing access to their in-depth knowledge of Raspberry Pi.
An ever-growing number of companies take advantage of Raspberry Pi technology and use our boards as part of their end products. Raspberry Pis are now essential components of everything from washing machines to underwater exploration vehicles. We love seeing these commercial applications, and are committed to helping bring Raspberry Pi-powered products to market. With this in mind, we are excited to announce our new Raspberry Pi Integrator Programme!
Whenever a company wants to sell a product on a market, it first has to prove that selling it is safe and legal. Compliance requirements vary between different products; rules that would apply to a complicated machine like a car will, naturally, not be the same as those that apply to a pair of trainers.
Different countries usually have slightly different sets of regulations, and testing has to be conducted at an accredited facility for the region the company intends to sell the product in. Companies have to put a vast amount of work into getting their product through compliance testing and certification to meet country-specific requirements. This is especially taxing for smaller enterprises.
