Successful exporting or importing relies on providing competitive products that conform to international standards and regulations, accompanied by the proof of conformity.
Products have to meet local regulatory requirements that allow them to be sold. They must also meet local industry and market standards or customers will not buy them.
Often product approval/ certification is conditional on having a quality management system in place to demonstrate continuing compliance.
We can support you on product testing and certification and implement systems to meet ISO management standards.
The regulation EU/2019/1020 requires manufacturers from non-EU countries to appoint an authorised representative within the EU to ensure the traceability of product “safety” during circulation and use after the product is placed on the EU market. Technical documents must be maintained in the European representative for 10 years for inspection by EU local authorities at any time.
The regulations require that all products that fall under CE scope must be marked with company name and address of the European generation while the CE mark is required on the packaging.
