Standards in exporting

Business man wondering which direction to turn


Is your business looking to sell its products into international markets?

If so, you'll need to ensure that your product design, manufacturing quality and labeling content is legally acceptable for each country.

And what if you don't?

Failure to comply with the law because of poor design, inferior manufacturing quality or inadequate labeling, may mean you won't be able to trade. Worse still, you may even find that if you've shipped your goods, they could be impounded when entering the country.

So if you're wondering in which direction to turn next to make sure your company's products can be legally exported, we're here to help...

Our export services

We see our task as straightforward. It's to help your business achieve product compliance for each country you intend exporting to.

Many countries, such as those in the EC will have common laws, but others will often have their own uniques rules and regulations. There may even be regional differences that need to be addressed.

We identify the standards you need to comply with and work with you to provide a road map to achieve your goal. We believe in helping you to be as independent as possible, but if you need practical assistance that's not a problem.

Updating service

And our services don't stop there. Laws inevitably change and our updating service will keep you up-to-date and allow you to react. However, we have been able to help save client's money by being able to use transitional arrangements which allow a product to continue being legally exported under its original compliance.
