Product compliance and standards management

Find out why product compliance is so important, and how standards and standards management solutions can help you with this task.

 

What is product compliance?

When we talk about “compliance”, we are referring to “product compliance”: Product compliance – or product conformity –  describes all regulatory provisions that a product must uphold to be available on the market.

As a consequence, companies bringing products to market fall under the legal obligation to take the actions necessary to ensure product compliance.

Manufacturers and distributors must guarantee that their products are designed and made in compliance with the relevant requirements of EU Directives and undergo a conformity assessment procedure.

If the conformity assessment takes place with reference to standards, these must be checked regularly to ensure that they are up-to-date. The Directives must be continually monitored.

Why is this so important?

Product requirements are becoming increasingly complex. In addition to the usual technical requirements, legal regulations (such as EU directives) are playing a more important role.

Manufacturers face a great responsibility - they are liable for ensuring that their products are in line with all relevant requirements laid out in such Directives.

If damages occur as a result of non-compliance with the requirements, there is a risk of serious consequences. These range from reputational damage to costly recalls and severe penalties.

You can avoid these risks by taking advantage of our Identification and Monitoring services that keep track of the requirements on products in your portfolio.
