Export cables need strong technical strength and strong funds. Taking UL certification as an example, it needs about 100,000 yuan to test 15 items, besides annual fee, quarterly fee and monthly fee. High toll threshold makes many small cable enterprises unable to reach, forcing domestic wire and cable enterprises have to choose domestic sales. Domestic sales only need to meet 3C certification, and its authentication fee is less than half of that of UL certification. For cable companies that want to export, it is not enough to just spend a lot of money to complete the certification. If they want to export cable, they must do a few things.
First. Technical standards
Overseas cable generally requires IEC or British standard, American standard and other advanced standards, so enterprises should be familiar with international standards.
Second. Laying conditions
In West Asia, Southeast Asia and other regions, the environmental conditions are relatively special, such as some areas of extreme high temperature of 50 degrees Celsius, high daily average temperature of 40 degrees Celsius. Therefore, the technical data should pay attention to the description of the technical parameters related to the environment (such as the correction factor of the carrying capacity).
Third. Cable packaging
For export cables, the delivery pallets are usually made of large or rigid plates and packed entirely in iron sheets or wooden strips. The size of cable tray should consider not only the length of cable tray and the small allowable bending radius of cable, but also the size of container. We must strictly comply with the order requirements. As the packaging of export cables is more complicated than domestic cables, it will affect the cost and delivery time of cables and wires. Therefore, attention should be paid to the contract.
Fourth.Other matters needing attention
Before delivery, the main technical parameters of cables, cross-sectional drawings, laying instructions and other information should be provided to the users, and the test report should also be shipped with the goods. Technical data should be kept intact and the manufacturing length of cables should be strictly controlled, and the error of delivery length should be minimized. All export products must be inspected through the State commodity inspection department, and a commodity inspection certificate should be issued.
For wire and cable enterprises that want to export, it is an inevitable challenge for them to meet the product standards in different markets. Cable manufacturers should select testing and certification institutions according to their own needs from the aspects of qualification, localization service, target market familiarity and so on, so as to effectively enter the overseas market.
