Engineering physicist, Rowan Beale, looks at pre-compliance testing and how it can greatly reduce the risks associated with formal compliance testing

Getting pre-compliance testing wrong can result in increased project costs and timescales, having to go around the development loop again, mismanaged expectations, and target markets not being achievable. So why put it off or bypass it altogether?

Rowan says, "It makes no sense to delay pre-compliance testing. Rather do it from the outset. Pre-compliance is about reducing risk and validating product design, so mitigating that risk during development is vital."
