Review by: Ioan Bacivarov, University “Politechnica” of Bucharest - June 1, 2017

...Electrical Product Compliance and Safety is an essential reference and text book that will prove of great importance for all professionals involved in the design, manufacturing, testing, servicing and marketing of electrical products, as well is intended also for instructors and students on electrical and electronics departments of Engineering Universities, by adding to the training syllabus an issue which was neglected until today. Consequently, I highly recommend this book, which is among the best ones in its category.

This is vital information for design engineers to give them perspective on the many issues they don’t get in their formal education. Preparing products for global marketing has many subtle hurdles that are best addressed early on in the process. This book provides much of that background

Review by: Kerry McManama - May 31, 2017

The authors have structured this book in an easy-to-read and-follow fashion, from product design considerations, to manufacturing and prototyping, conformity assessment necessities and the sustaining engineering principles. They provide the basic concepts that every product manager should take into consideration when designing, manufacturing, and marketing their product. This book should occupy a prime position on the product manager's desk.
