Compliance expertise for ELECTRICAL Products & ELECTRONICS
You're a manufacturer or importer of electrical or electronic products? Then you ought to know exactly which legal requirements apply to your products in the proposed destination countries so as to prevent inconvenient product recall campaigns or any other unpleasant surprises during importation.
Which market Authorization requirements are mandatory?
Manufacturers of electronic and electrical engineering products often have to have specific certifications and/or authorizations for non-EU target markets, e.g. FCC for electromagnetic compatibility in the USA or CCC for product safety in China. To be able to comply with these requirements, you need to spend time researching every destination country individually. Moreover, it's important for manufacturers to determine which requirements are obligatory and which are optional.
Placing electrotechnical products on a market is a complex task even within the EU, because a wide range of harmonization legislation applies. These include, for example, Directives on EMC, Low Voltage, RoHS, ErP or ATEX, which frequently also give rise to delineation issues regarding product-specific harmonization legislation, such as the Radio Equipment Directive or the Machinery Directive.
