The standards for certification are compiled at national, European and international level. There are more than 100,000 standards that are regularly revised. Manufacturers, importers, and distributors often wonder what standards apply to their product.
It all begins with the question of whether a product is correctly certified. If this is not the case, there are numerous European directives and thousands of standards that can apply to a product. Additionally, directives and standards are regularly changed by legislators.
In a number of cases, a manufacturer can and must appoint an authorized representative for the European Union to carry out certain tasks on their behalf. In that way, you can outsource certain tasks to a party with the right knowledge to carry out these tasks more efficiently.
