European Compliance for Successful Entry into the EU

The EU acts as a “single” market as it pertains to essential safety, health and environmental requirements.  Your product must meet these requirements in order to be legally sold anywhere in the EU.  Understanding these regulatory requirements is key to export success in the EU. 

Often referred to as “CE Marking”, obtaining this mark confirms your product is in compliance.  It is the legal responsibility of the manufacturer, importer and distributor in the supply chain. Come learn from Netherlands based, & STEP Associate Member, Certification Experts, on the steps for certification such that your products can be placed on the Union market.
