A large number of statutory regulations influence the development and production, as well as the labelling and packaging of electric and electronic devices. Even disposal of these products as waste at the end of their life cycles is regulated by law. The complexity increases in cross-border trade because, for example, disposal of electric and electronic products as waste is regulated differently in the various EU member states.
Our customers in this category are mostly importers and dealers, with some manufacturers included. This means that for products in this category we deal primarily with questions of product compliance, but also of materials compliance.
