The world is increasingly going wireless. But when it comes to charging small mobile electronics and other wireless power applications, who is making sure that the products being manufactured are safe? Who is ensuring those products work smoothly with one another, regardless of brand? We do.
Established in 2008, WPC is an open standards development group that works with electronic and technology companies across the world. Our mission is to set global standards for safety, efficiency and interoperability of wireless power applications. We are the world’s leading authority on wireless power transfer and a hallmark of trust, relied upon by millions of people in countless countries.
WPC is comprised of over 300 member companies from across the world. We’re made up of large household brands such as Apple, Sony, Samsung, Microsoft, Huawei and Google, as well as many smaller and start-up technology companies, all who recognize the need and benefits of standards. By collaborating together as one group, we’re able to define and redefine global standards in wireless power. Our Qi interface technology, certified for over 9000 different wireless charging products, is a great example of what collaboration and cooperation can do.
It’s not just today’s mobile products that we’re concerned with. Wireless charging is evolving beyond consumer handheld devices into new applications such as ebikes and escooters, and intelligent cordless kitchens. Our new Ki standard is building a blueprint for the cordless kitchen and we’re developing global standards for the booming world market in light electric vehicles too. Safety, efficiency and interoperability are three big words for the future.
We use a network of independent authorized labs around the globe to implement our rigorous testing. Only member companies can have their products tested and certified for one of our standards. It sets them apart from their competitors and is one of many great reasons to join us.
Standards are essential as all electronic products should be safe, efficient and interoperable. Our rigorous certification testing assures consumers and businesses that the equipment they use can be relied on, wherever it’s being used, whatever it’s being used with.
Whether you’re interested in influencing standard development, seeking a competitive edge or simply want the benefit of certification, the advantages gained from WPC membership are very compelling.
Membership has enabled us to create an exciting new category in kitchen technology and position us as a leader.
