Selling products to other countries comes with many hoops to jump through. Often each country has different standards and requirements for products sold within their borders. Global market access product safety testing can ease the way for you to sell your products around the world. Your product is worth sending out into the world, don’t let safety testing hold you back.
Offering a product for consumers or businesses here in the US requires certain regulations or certifications before it can be sold. For example, the Energy Star certification is for energy efficient products such as solar panels, home appliances, and air conditioning.
Depending on where in the world you want to sell your products, there are certifications and standards required before the goods enter those countries. Since the country you want to sell in likely has different regulations than others, consider which countries to start with first. Selling to multiple countries in a similar region can save you time and energy as many use similar certifications such as the individual countries in the EU or the Middle East.
As an owner or manager, you may decide to navigate the different regulations yourself, but it can be daunting. Regulations and certifications can change and cost you money. Stay ahead of the game by hiring a services company specializing in product safety testing in the global market place. Some companies specialize in certain regions while others may offer a more comprehensive package. Thoroughly research the company and what services they offer and how they benefit your company.
Taking your product to the world doesn’t have to be a daunting endeavor. The loops and hoops can be understood easier with a little guidance from someone specializing in the country or region’s requirements for products. Staying up to date and on top of product safety testing can help you grow, expand and profit in your business.
