    Compatible And Comply?

    HELLO EVERYONE,

    Parts that come in direct contact with the interior of the cooler must comply with LMBG regulations and must be compatible with Agion. Devices intended for export to the USA must have FDA approval.
    DOES THIS UNDERLINED MEAN THAT PARTS MUST COMPLY WITH LMBG REGULATIONS AS WELL AS AGION?
    REGARDS

    'comply' means that something must meet some standard, usually set down in a set of regulations by the government. For example, in the UK, every electrical product must meet certain standards of safety so people don 't get electrocuted because of poor insulation; and to ensure the product will not overheat and cause a fire etc.

    'compatible' means that two things will work together without interfering with each others performance; or without some special modification having to be made in order to be able to use the two things together.
    So, I can have a TV set which complies with all the government regulations and standards in the UK; but in the States it is not compatible for two reasons:
    1. we have 240V electrical current and they have 110V
    2. we have the PAL TV system and they have NTSC.

    Even when both voltage and PAL TV systems are the same as with UK and Australia, TVs aren't compatible with the PAL TV broadcast signals and so not interchangeable, because UK has the Nicam sound system for the audio part of the television signal.

    So, in your query, it must comply with the LMBG regulations, but compatible with Agion (which I have no idea what it is or what it looks like)

    Another example of compatibility: you can't run Apple Mac software on an ordinary Windows-based PC (but you can run Windows -based software on a MAC in addition to its own dedicated software packages).
