If you want to sell certain products in EU countries which were manufactured outside the EU, you must have an authorized representative in the EU (an EU Rep) to support the import process. This includes helping you understand the requirements of your destination market, reviewing product compliance and labelling, holding your technical documentation and declarations of conformity, and cooperating with authorities on your behalf.
Your authorized representative can be your company's EU branch, if you have one, or you can designate an importer or distributor as your representative. Either way, their focus is to get your products to your destination market quickly and might not be able to prioritize authorized representative tasks. Alternately, you can partner with an experienced and dedicated third-party service that can help you establish your products on the EU market while maintaining manufacturing and labeling compliance long-term. QIMA's rich industry experience and a full team of experts can help.
