Any company looking to sell products in the EU needs to consider the regulatory aspects of the market. Some of the CE Marking Directives require the manufacturer to use an authorised representative when selling in Europe.

Some companies choose to use the importer or sales agent or perhaps their EU Local Office as their representative. Not all agents are able to offer this service as they don’t meet the requirements of the Directives. There are companies that are able to take on the role of Authorised Representative.

Using an independent Authorised representative who is not involved in the sales process helps demonstrate to your Distributor that you have no preference as to which Sales Company you prefer.

The Authorised Representative will be the holders of your documentation having it available for the statutory authorities as required. The responsibility of the Authorised Representative may also include counter-signing the Declaration of Conformity and perhaps being a part of the Quality Management Assessment.
