Certification Company – Your reliable EU Authorised Representative

An EU Authorised Representative (or EU Responsible Person) is a natural or legal person who acts on behalf of the manufacturer in relation to the CE legislation:

  • keeps all technical documentation available for inspection,
  • takes care of any incident reporting,
  • ensures compliance with constant regulatory updates and so on.

On the 16th of July 2021 a new Regulation 2019/1020 came into force that made mandatory for non-EU manufacturers to appoint an EU Authorised Representative (or EU Responsible Person) to be able to sell CE-marked products in the European Union. Please be aware that this Regulation is not only related to offline sales, but also to online. Certification Company have assisted many manufacturers in fulfilling their EU Authorised Representative needs and to have collaborations with well-known e-commerce platforms like Amazon SPN, ebay and bol.com.

Do you buy products outside the EU to resell it afterwards in the EU? Then you will be seen as an importer with all the related obligations. So, an appointing of the EU Authorised Representative may be beneficial to the importer as well (eventhough he is located in the EU) to have less liabilities to the European Commission, Authorities and Notified Bodies.

Product groups for EU Authorised Representative services

The product range for EU Authorised Representative services is huge from toys to complex machinery and installations and is related to the existing Directives and Regulations (Art. 4, section 5 Regulation 2019/1020). The simpliest way to check your product is to find whether the product bares CE-marking. If the CE-marking is affixed, send us the Declaration of Conformity and we will assist you in the further steps. Are you an importer? Did you find the CE-marking affixed, but you do not have the Declaration of Conformity? Contact us to get more information, where and how to request it.
