Product compliance is a company’s internal process which ensures that each product already fulfils all legal requirements when it is made available on the market. While such processes have existed for decades, their significance and the amount of work involved have increased exponentially over the past few years.
What should be done? Answer: Integrate product compliance into the company’s processes in such a way that these legal requirements are fulfilled “automatically”. This saves time, spares resources and prevents mistakes. Anyone who can do that is a competent partner for customers and a responsible market participant for the authorities. That is a genuine competitive advantage.
There are a number of ways to approach this task. We would be glad to advise you and your company on how to become and stay “compliant” with your products.
