Partnership between Landbell Group and ProductIP

Nowadays, products must not only comply with legal regulations, guidelines and requirements, but they must also be properly disposed of and recycled at the end of their lifetime (extended producer responsibility).

Keeping up to date and knowing which rules have to be complied with in the face of increasing complexity poses ever greater challenges for distributors, importers and manufacturers.

For most product requirements there is EU-wide harmonisation due to the internal market, but there may still be national specifics. The extended producer responsibility (EPR) requirements on electrical and electronic equipment, batteries and packaging are defined in EU directives and regulations. However, those provisions are implemented differently at national level. Still, compliance with all regulations is a prerequisite for being legally allowed to market products.

The cooperation between Landbell Group and ProductIP will make it easier for manufacturers to enter the market and to ensure long-term compliance. ProductIP is a long-time expert on the conformity of products with requirements such as product marking or declarations of conformity. Landbell Group will bring its expertise on EPR from over 140 countries to the partnership.

“Keeping up to date and managing the number of documents in the supply chain is no longer something you can do with Excel and email. Our digital solutions and our product compliance know-how are already used by more than 19,500 customers. Now, with the cooperation with Landbell Group, our services are complemented by an important aspect: the so-called extended producer responsibility. This enables us to offer our customers even better and more comprehensive services,” says Maarten van der Dussen, Managing Director of ProductIP.

“The cooperation between ProductIP and Landbell Group allows for comprehensive advice on compliance issues from product design to the end of use phase. The two partners complement each other perfectly. This is a further step towards reducing the complexity of compliance management for our customers,” says Jan Patrick Schulz, CEO of Landbell Group.
