Product compliance for importers

An importer may only bring compliant products into a country to place on the market.  This applies to all products imported into the EU, and in principle also to non-EU countries.  The importer ensures the conformity assessment procedure was carried out by the manufacturer and that the product comes with all the requisite documentation.

Every importer has extensive monitoring obligations and needs to cooperate with market surveillance authorities.  Failure to comply with these obligations may result in sanctions being issued, such as an import ban or a product recall order.

    Trust is good, mandatory monitoring is better

    Expert knowledge for successfully placing compliant products on the market.
