EU Representation

Representing non-EU based manufacturers in a successful EU Market entry and safeguarding their future across the European community.

Any non-EU based manufacturer which wishes to make their goods available within the EU market requires an EU based entity which meets the requirements as laid out in the applicable legislation(s) in addition to representing them before the Competent Authorities. Depending on the legislation, this may be referred to as European Authorized Representative (EC REP) or EU Responsible Person (EU RP).

While the EU is an economic and political union, it is still not one single country. It requires a professional representative to support you in navigating the complexities of changing legislation along with economic and political upheavals across any and all of the 27 EU Member States, 4 EFTA countries and the UK.
