Why Use EU Authorised Representative Services?
Effective from July 16th, 2021, the Market Surveillance Regulation adopted by the European Commission requires that every business from outside the EU selling products directly or indirectly (through ecommerce platforms) must have either an importer or an authorised representative located in the EU.
They will act as a liaison between the manufacturer and a national authority within the EU. The address of this economic operator must be clearly visible on the product or packaging. The purpose is to minimise the risk of unsafe products entering the market.
24hour-AR represents you as your Authorised Representative in all EU countries.
Don't Risk Having Your Products Turned Back!
Does one of the following apply to you?
1. You Sell Through E-Commerce Websites
To sell your products on fulfilment platforms such as Amazon, Alibaba, eBay, or Etsy, you must use a valid economic operator address established in the EU. These platforms won't allow you to sell on them without the address, and you cannot use theirs.
2. You Sell Direct-To-Consumer
Each product must have the economic operator's address printed on the product, packaging, or elsewhere. Without it, your products are not allowed to enter the European Union.
For businesses located outside the EU, you have two options: You can have either an official importer or an Authorised Representative within the EU. As your Authorised Representative, you can legally use our address to gain access to the European market.
