The growing interest in “do-it-yourself” (DIY) projects has bolstered the global demand for a growing array of power hand tools and powered garden equipment to tackle a wide range of home-based projects. At the same time, global manufacturers of power tools and garden equipment face a number of critical compliance challenges. In addition to mandatory regulations, manufacturers also must address important concerns from retailers and consumers regarding quality and environmental sustainability. Finally, cost considerations can result in a reliance on extensive supply chains, and the need to consider all of the accompanying issues.

In most major markets, power tools and equipment are subject to regulations addressing electrical safety concerns. Depending on the specific type of equipment, additional regulations may address physical safety requirements, electromagnetic interference, operating noise levels, material chemical composition and product recycling issues.
