What is an EU or UK Authorized Representative

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.

On the 1st January 2021 anyone in GB or the EU placing goods from the other side of The Channel on the market changed from being a distributor to an importer of goods from a third country with new obligations.

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.

Ensure the appropriate conformity assessment procedure has been carried out by the manufacturer.

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
