Compliance Report Tool Information

Disclaimer: The content in the PDF report is provided for general information purposes only. The content includes summaries written by our team members based on publicly available information about product safety standards, labeling, documentation, testing, processes, and other product compliance-related topics. However, we don’t guarantee that we cover every single relevant regulation/standard/requirement applicable to a certain product (We only cover the regulations/directives/rules listed in this document), or that the information is free from errors, or covering every single option, scenario, or exemption. We do make mistakes from time to time. We never provide legal advice of any sort.

Changes/Updates: Product standards and substance restrictions are subject to frequent updates and changes. In addition, new regulations, standards, and/or requirements may also become effective at any time. We review a predetermined list of official EU and US sources to stay up to date with updated product certification, labeling, testing, and other compliance requirements. We send the reports monthly to our customers by email – and clarify which (if any) of the update requires an update to the Compliance Report Tool database.

1. We do not guarantee that all updates are made in real-time. There can be a delay from the implementation of new requirements until we have updated the tool.

2. We do not guarantee that we ‘catch’ every single new or updated compliance requirement.

3. We recommend that you consult a lab testing company to get the latest information about mandatory standards/regulations in your market, country, or state. Lab testing companies generally stay up to date on new and updated standards and regulations.

Learn more:

National/State-Level Standards/Regulations: The report doesn’t cover all European national and US state standards, regulations, and requirements. We recommend that you consult a testing company or other professional to confirm all relevant (and current) national/state-level standards and regulations.

Sources: We link to official website sources in this report under Learn more, where you must go to find additional information about each topic.

Technical problems: The tool could malfunction as a result of programming bugs, hacking or other software interfering with the Product Compliance Report Tool. This can in turn result in the report missing information or containing for other reasons incorrect information. We test the tool* on a monthly basis, but cannot guarantee that this will never happen.
*Testing on Chrome browser on desktop (Macbook Air M1 Chip 2020) only. We do not test on other website browsers or mobile devices.

Product Manager Information

Editors: We create the certificate and label file templates based on official sources, which we also link to. However, we do not guarantee that the templates are correct and perfectly applicable to every possible product or scenario.

1. The standard fields may not be sufficient in some cases. Hence, you may need to add additional fields to the template.

2. Additional requirements may have been added which renders our template outdated.

3. Always compare the template to the provided source link before you download.

4. Do not assume that the editors cover all documents/certificates and labels that may be required for a certain product.

5. Technical problems can occur when saving or downloading files created using the editors (e.g. missing fields or incorrect information) due to software bugs or connection issues. We test* all forms on a monthly basis to ensure that the field data is included in the downloaded file. But, we cannot guarantee that technical problems will never occur. It’s therefore important that you carefully review the download files and confirm that all the information is correct.
*Testing on Chrome browser on desktop (Macbook Air M1 Chip 2020) only. We do not test on other website browsers or mobile devices.

6. Notice that we do send our templates for review to a qualified legal professional, who compares the template and the official source material, for publication. However, even this does not guarantee that it’s free from mistakes, always up to date, or that it’s applicable to your specific product or scenario.

Tutorials: The Product Manager includes tutorials that serve as general guides for when certain steps are taking, such as the creation of label files or booking lab testing. However, the exact nature of each step and their order can differ on a case-by-case basis.

How is the information gathered?

Compliance Report Tool: We use official sources to gather the information provided in the report, such as ec.europa.eu. The report also includes links to all sources. We only cover the regulations/directives/rules listed in this document.

Product Manager: We use official sources to create the label and certificate templates, such as ec.europa.eu. Each template is then submitted to a legal professional for review and a second opinion before publication.

Is the information updated?

We review official sources on a monthly basis, to help us determine if we need to update the Compliance Report Tool or the Product Manager (Label and Certificate Templates). We send a newsletter after each monthly review to all active subscribers. Learn more in the Monthly Review Methodology document.

What can we expect from the support?

We can answer general questions about the information in the report and the practical aspects of the process. We can also recommend testing companies, consultants, and other resources. However, we cannot make our own interpretations or assess if a certain product meets the relevant compliance requirements.

What qualifications do you have?

Our background is primarily in product development and manufacturing in Asia. You can learn more about the team members on the About us page.
