Product Safety

Understanding the regulatory requirements of placing safe and compliant products on the market is a fundamental part of the process; it means you can access the markets you want, raise brand profile and it will help you avoid regulatory investigations, enforcement action or customer complaints.

Our specialist team can guide you through the process of bringing a new product to market, expanding your market reach without falling foul of diverging regulatory regimes post-Brexit, complying with import/export controls, ensuring you have the mandatory test certificates, declarations, registrations and CE/UKCA marking required for your specific product, ensuring that the product is correctly labelled and setting up the right supply chain to minimise your risk exposure.

But sometimes things do go wrong, and when they do, we’ll be ready to help you navigate that too. We have extensive experience in supporting our clients through regulatory investigations and enforcement action, including large scale, multi-jurisdictional product recalls and withdrawals. We can help you take swift action to minimise reputational damage and reduce the risk of further enforcement action.

Our experience

Our experience in this area is extensive. We’ve helped clients across numerous sectors including, food and drink, medical and healthcare, pharmaceutical and building and construction. We help clients at all stages of the supply chain from manufacturers, importers, authorised representatives, distributors, suppliers and customers.
