Product compliance for manufacturers

manufacturer Obligations – to know and fulfil

As a product manufacturer, you're obliged to ensure every one of your products is designed and manufactured in accordance with the respectively relevant regulatory legislation.  The manufacturer bears product liability, which means he is liable for damage compensation in every country, state or region in which their product is marketed.

Liability and damage compensation risks

Infringement of any of the manufacturer obligations can result in market surveillance authorities issuing your business or products with sanctions or embargos, ranging from a sales ban to a product recall order.  Customs authorities are also increasingly inspecting products more closely – especially in countries outside the EU.  Incorrect labeling, markings or declarations of conformity can result in products being held by customs for weeks at a time.
