How do I choose an Authorised Representative?

It is important to choose your Authorised Representative (AR) wisely. Your AR will have access to all files and information of the concerned products, so appointing a party that is not economically or commercially involved with products is a preferred choice for manufacturers. 

Considering the AR’s duties to verify the Declaration of Conformity and liaise between the manufacturer and market authorities, it is crucial to choose an Authorised Representative that has expertise in compliance. This prevents legal complications and ensures that you, as the manufacturer, will only be notified of compliance matters that affect your product directly.
