Case studies

Individual Market Access Guides

The interpretation of regulatory requirements regarding products for civil or military use, machinery and equipment on the global market varies from one project to another in accordance with your product, its country of origin and the destination country.  Among other things, the interpretation takes into account requirements that apply in the respective target market regarding safety, electromagnetic compatibility and materials used in conformance with relevant local environmental legislation.

Often this involves countries such as the USA, Canada, Brazil, China, India, Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, Russia and EU Member States.  Yet we've also compiled market access guides for less frequently requested countries such as Israel and Colombia.

Best Practice: Preparing a Market Access Guide for Colombia

A client wanted to import a product into Colombia.  We conducted the initial research and had to find answers to these kinds of questions:

  • Are IEC standards accepted in Colombia?
  • Is there any relation to the standardization situation as it applies in the US market (NEC, NFPA)?  Do those standards have legal force in Colombia?
  • Does a standard voltage apply throughout Colombia and what types of power outlets are used to supply consumer electricity?
  • Does a list of National Standards exist?
  • Does Colombia have a national Conformity Assessment (CA) procedure for placing products on the market?
  • Who are the national notifying / approval authorities or agencies?  How are they to be involved in market authorization and the product launch?
  • Does Colombia have Directives similar to the Machinery Directive and the EMC Directive?
  • What Directives need to be observed and what authorizations are required in regard to telecommunications and remote communications equipment?
  • What national Directives, CA and market authorization procedures exist regarding equipment and systems intended for medical use?
