globalnorm Compliance
Edition 03/2020
Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,

We’re coming to the end of a memorable year, and once again we’re all having to adjust to considerable restrictions. A lot is being asked of each and every one of us, including of course at work. The majority of the GLOBALNORM team have been working remotely since March. Many of us have had to adjust to completely new ways of working – you can probably tell us a thing or two about online meetings yourself. It’s probably safe to say that not all home office setups in Germany are fulfilling the regulations right now... But to make sure that that doesn't happen to your products and machinery, we’ve once again put together lots of interesting content for you.

We hope you’ll gain a new insight or two!

Best wishes and stay safe,


Our news

8. GLOBALNORM Conference Product Compliance VIRTUAL

Just as our Expert Dialogue for Product Compliance Officers took place virtually on 23.11.20, we had to cancel our 8th GLOBALNORM Conference on Product Compliance as a presence event with a heavy heart. 

But especially now and tomorrow (24. + 25.11.20) compact online tutorials of our experts will take place, so that you can still refresh your know-how.

We won’t say any more about future events with our experts at the moment, as it's unfortunately impossible to provide reliable information so far ahead. Keep an eye on our events calendar to see which seminars will be held where or in what format. Thank you very much!
