Why are there websites for each scheme?

Each scheme website contains specific information focused on the relevant scheme. For example you will find there each scheme fact sheet or each scheme scope.

How to search in the licensed products?

You have different ways to search for licenses in our databases and here is how it works. The examples below are for ENEC, but the principles are the same for the other databases.

 

On our website, if you go to “licensed products” and choose ENEC, you will reach the page below (the direct link is to this page is: http://etics.org/recherche.php?soc=ENEC&s=1 ) where you have all the search options.

 

The different options for searching are:

  • By license number: if you know a part or the full license number, you can just enter it in this field and you will get all matching results. (e.g.: the search on 1234 returns 24 results)
  • By product code: If you know the product code, you can just search for it in the database. For this search to return results, you need to enter the exact product code as for this field the search engine does not take into account partial strings.
  • By trade mark: just start typing few letters of the trade mark you are looking for and you will get suggested names. Then, just choose the one you are interested in and the corresponding licenses will be displayed.
  • By product description: In this field, you can enter a product description (e.g.: fans) or a standard number (e.g.: part 2-80) and you’ll get all licenses for this specific product description.
  • By name: If you know the commercial name of the product you are looking for, just enter it. As for the previous search, you will get suggestions as you are typing letters. I would not recommend this search as the corresponding field is not always properly filled in.
  • By CB code: this allows you to see all licenses granted by one of the ENEC members.

 

And obviously you can mix several criteria to narrow down your search.
