Hi Ferry,

Thank you for this article. I have been over to your website. If we gave you pictures of a product, and a description of it, would you be able to tell us which EC Directives it would come under, and which Template we would need to buy for it from your Shop section? Would you charge for this advice?

-Search on the website of normalisation institutes, such as DIN, BS, ISO, IEC, NEN and SIS, by using key words
-Google on for example ‘standard + product’
-Search the Official Publication Journal of the European Community.

However, these where batches of products and they could be down time of up to 3 days. = loss of revenue. I am looking into a pre approval method to avoid Amazon suppressing any of our products. I followed the above below instructions, however when I click the Listings Limitations Apply button, I cannot see the Request Approval under the product information.Any ideas? o request pre-approval, you should do the following: Go to Catalog… Read more »

Hi Shane. Are you talking about Amazon’s instructions that you followed? I have no experience with that. You can shoot me an email at [email protected] with more info if you like. Happy to help!

Will amazon ask to only see the DoC certificate or will retailers/manufacturers be required show compliance through test reports and a technical file?
