Certificate for switches is a key document which ensures that the product has passed through the certification procedure, which established its full compliance with the requirements of Russian legislation imposed for this type of product.

At present, the domestic market offers various types of switches, such as a one-key switches, two-key switches, three-key switches, infrared switches, radio-controlled, devices for blinds, dimmer switches, and sensor model. Also there are difference between switches with respect to protection against moisture and dust, making material, method of installation, etc.

Since usually switches are inserted into the wall or placed on its surface, directly connected to the current path, they are a potential threat to life and health of the users.
