Product Compliance Solutions

Unlocking Your Business Opportunities

CE marking

Accessing new markets knowing product compliance becomes no barrier

Product compliance is increasingly becoming a stumbling block for exporters and sellers. Products are increasingly subject to regulation. E-commerce platforms, market surveillance authorities, and customers are scrutinizing compliance with regulations and standards more closely than ever. Now you are requested to provide a Declaration of Conformity, certificates, test reports, risk assessment, and conformity markings, such as the CE marking, the UKCA marking, EAC marking, and GSO marking. All these rules, regulations, and standards are complex, and ensuring compliance can be daunting.

Which requirements apply to your products? Which tests and certifications are really necessary? (Which tests and certifications can be skipped, or done in-house?) Can you leverage your suppliers’ product compliance documentation? How to verify whether the supplier compliance documentation is real or fake? What measures can be taken against your company in case of non-compliance? How will that impact your business?

Testimonials

A large e-commerce platform removed a listing for one of our best-selling products.  In their opinion, our product did not comply with CE marking. We reached out to Alura Group, and Han confirmed that this product did not need CE marking. The document he provided helped to convince the e-commerce platform and get our product re-listed in just a couple of days.

Thank you!
