Most types of sports, fitness and leisure equipment are expected to meet requirements for functional and electrical safety before being granted access to major markets. In addition to testing for compliance with regulatory requirements, manufacturers may also choose to subject their products to performance and durability testing in order to provide consumers with information on how their products will perform under actual use conditions. Finally, some retailers may require additional product testing and supply chain assessments as part of their product procurement process.
