For a reasonable and flawless reconciliation of interests
You heard about some new EU directives or other legal provisions?
You cannot assess whether at all or to what extent your company is affected by them?
Questions regarding product safety and product conformity are becoming more and more important for companies, as the sovereign rights have been considerably extended with the new EU market surveillance regulation. The ramifications of the legal requirements on your own business are diverse and often not immediately apparent. This includes product-related legal issues pertaining to the national law and the EU law, including product and manufacturer liability, product safety and environmental law. The economic agents, such as product manufacturers, importers and distributors, are responsible for the compliance of their products to all applicable legislation. The knowledge and application of the market access rules in force is therefore essential for all economic agents and is required by the law.
TERGAU & WALKENHORST advises you on all relevant legal matters in this field and assists you, if necessary, in creating a functional early warning system, which will become part of your risk management. We provide custom-made monitoring solutions for your company, based on the current national legislation and EU law, as well as assistance in implementing risk-taking measures to ensure compliance with the product-related legal requirements.
