The Type 1 certification is being implemented by the DCLD-PCAS to complement the other two types of certification (i.e. Type 2 – Batch certification, and Type 5 – Factory assessment).

This scheme established to serve walk in clients, it covers currently only voluntary products where suppliers may apply for certification of a defined quantity of their products against any recognized international, national, or local specifications.
