Important 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, or that the information is free from errors, or covering every single input option, scenario, and 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 don’t update the tool databank whenever new standards/regulations/rules are added or changed. We recommend that you consult a lab testing company or other professional 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. You must also follow the links under 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 information 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.

How is the information gathered?

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.

Is the information updated?

We review official sources on a monthly basis. 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
General
What is the purpose of this tool?

The purpose of the tool is to better help you find information about compliance requirements. This tool generates a PDF report based on the following parameters:

  • Country/market
  • Product category
  • Product parameters (e.g. materials)

The report includes brief summaries about various compliance requirements (e.g. certification and labeling requirements) and links to sources for further reading. It also gathers information from many different sources that are otherwise time-consuming to find.

It serves as a first step towards navigating compliance requirements for a certain product – but this does not mean that the product compliance tool will “certify” or “make” your product compliant. This is further explained in this FAQ.

How should we use this tool?

As said, the tool serves as a first step towards researching compliance requirements for a certain product and its parameters. This is an example of how a process can work:

1. Create a report using the product compliance information tool

2. Send a support ticket in case you have further questions

3. Request a lab test quotation (to confirm specific tests/standards and other requirements not covered by the tool)

4. Contact the relevant consumer safety/market surveillance/other authorities to confirm additional requirements (if any)

5. Create compliance documents and label files

Using the tool for the initial step of the process will likely save you many hours per report. Still, we strongly emphasize that the tool is only a first step and requires that you take further action.

What should I do once the report is generated?

You need to carefully study the resources provided under Learn more for each topic.

Do you guarantee that my products become compliant and safe if I use the tool?

No, the report itself does not make your product become compliant. It serves as a starting point and provides a general direction for further research and action. However, the report doesn’t serve as a “confirmation” of compliance requirements to a specific product or country.

You may still need to take the following steps:

1. Contact the relevant authorities (including national and/or state level authorities) to assess if any other product regulations, standards or requirements apply to your product (e.g. not mentioned in the report).

2. Book third-party lab testing

3. Confirm applicable product standards and ensure that your product designs are compliant

Note: 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.

4. Create label files and documentation

5. Apply for pre-import approvals and/or permits

6. Assess your suppliers’ ability to manufacture compliant products

Do you guarantee that the information in the report is accurate and complete?

We don’t guarantee that the information in the report is free of error, inaccurate, or covering every possible product specification/scenario. Further, we don’t guarantee that the report covers every single standard and regulation that may apply to a certain product, in the relevant market, country, or state.

1. We could misunderstand certain requirements (e.g. labeling or testing), or fail to add relevant information about certain compliance requirements. We do make mistakes from time to time.

2. We don’t guarantee that we include information on every single product regulation, labeling requirement, documentation requirement, certificates, testing requirement, or process that may apply to a certain product.

3. Also, we generally (with some exceptions) don’t cover European national and US state-level product standards and regulations. We recommend that you consult a testing company to confirm all relevant (and current) national/state-level standards and regulations.

The reports should only be treated as a broad introduction to requirements for a certain product. The benefit is that you’ll save time and know in which direction to go and do further research – but it is not a definitive report that covers every single compliance requirement.

Further, this tool is currently at an early stage development phase and will be continuously improved throughout 2020 and 2021. We, therefore, recommend that you assume that the reports are incomplete to a certain extent.

How do you gather the information provided in the report?

1. We conduct online research, primarily through official government websites. These are also provided as sources and recommended reading in the report.

2. We have years of experience working with various aspects of product compliance. This includes research and practical supply chain management aspects – such as lab testing, labeling, supplier risk assessments, and more.

Do you keep the tool up to date?

Existing standards and regulations are subject to changes on a regular basis. In addition, new regulations, standards and/or requirements may also become effective. In fact, there are changes on a monthly basis.

We don’t update the tool databank whenever new standards/regulations/rules are added or changed. 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.

How many reports can I generate?

You can generate an unlimited number of reports for the duration of your subscription.

Does this tool help me confirm applicable standards?

No, this tool does not cover product standards (e.g EN 71 or ASTM). We recommend that you let a third-party testing company assess applicable product standards on a case to case basis. Keep in mind that product standards are subject to change, and new may be added. Third-party testing companies generally stay up to date with new and updated standards.

How many reports can I save?

You can save up to 500 reports in My Reports. You can also delete reports if you exceed this number.

Online Support
What kind of support do you offer?

Ask questions related to the tool or general compliance processes. We can also recommend service providers in our network, such as testing companies and consultants. However, we do not offer legal advice, classifications, assessments, calls, or research.

  • Ask questions about using the tool and the information in the report
  • Ask questions about the general compliance process
  • Receive guidance to other official resources (e.g. government websites)
  • Request recommendations concerning testing companies, and other service providers
How many tickets do you include?
  • Basic: None
  • Startup: 5 Tickets
  • Business: 20 Tickets
How do you define one support ticket?

1 Ticket = One or more questions related to one topic/product.

Can we send the reports to our customers?

We do allow agencies and other companies (e.g. freight forwarders and sourcing companies) to generate reports for their customers. However, this should only be done with caution.

1. Your customers should not rely on the reports alone. Without reading this FAQ and understanding the context they could assume that the report covers all applicable compliance requirements – which is not necessarily the case.

2. Further, we do not accept that companies sell reports generated through the tool – or provide them for free to the public.

In short, the tool is designed for internal usage – by people who understand what the tool is used for and its limitations.
