So how can CERT help me?

If you export and sell products to the European Union (EU) and are resident outside the EU, you will need market representation. The same applies for the United Kingdom (UK).

From 16 July 2021 the EU market is also bringing in the new Market Surveillance Regulation, so if you sell products into the EU/EEA without using an importer or fulfilment service provider, you will need local market representation. This means you will no longer be able to sell products online abroad and then ship the product directly to the consumer in the EU/EEA markets without local market representation.

Fortunately we can offer a solution to this challenge!

Authorised Representation can be simply setup in 4 steps:

What does CERT offer?
