Authorised Rep Compliance provides EU Authorized Representative Services (formerly EC) and UK Authorized Representative Services for trading and selling goods in both the European Union and the United Kingdom (UK).

If you manufacture products and goods to be imported and distributed in the EU or UK and are required to meet EU labelling requirements then appointing an Authorised Represenative provides a single point of contact with market surveillance authorities enforcing consumer protection and health and safety. It avoids your distributors having to represent your products and needing access to detailed technical documentation on your products.

With more than 25 years experience working with European and UK product legislation, our expert service will provide you with the representation market surveillance authorities and customers expect.

Our sister company Product Compliance Support Ltd can help with any aspect of Product legislation if required.

Understanding the meaning of an EU, EC or UK Authorised Representative will help understand why an EU AR, EC Rep or UK Rep may be required for importing and exporting products in the European Community or the UK.

The requirement for non-EU products to be represented to the authorities by someone in the EU has been around since the EU single market was launched in the 1990s. Initially, the rules were very unclear and it took a long time for them to be clarified enough for most manufacturers to realise the need.

A major change occurred on On the 1st January 2021 when the UK left the EU single market. Anyone in GB or the EU placing goods from the other side of The Channel on the market could no longer be a distributor. Instead they needed an importer established in the market on which the goods are being placed.

In recent years the legislators have made efforts to strengthen and extend the requirement for authorised representation to more products and supply chains in order to help consumer protection authorities deal with unsafe products.

In particular the market surveillance Regulation EU 2019/1010 tightens the rules in the EU for imported products to help the authorities trace and question overseas manufacturers.

We can help you meet these new rules and in particular provide you with:

  • An EU address to place on all your products supplied in the EU
  • A UK address to place on all your products supplied into Great Britain


We have compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions.

Below you will find questions relating to Brexit and the requirement to have an Economic Operator in the EU and also legislation known as Regulation (EU) 2019/1020, concerned with regulating market surveillance and compliance of products.
