The Product Compliance Portal: ROGER WILLCO

Companies offering their products for sale in Europe and elsewhere find themselves confronted with a growing number of legal requirements in relation to the initial research of market authorization requirements as well as the obligation to keep up to date – tasks that are difficult to master without expertise and support.

Some companies have in-house experts who can take on these projects.  However, even they also need a central tool that can collate and manage the necessary information on market authorization requirements and legislation.  In addition, they also need an early-warning system, which automatically alerts them to all relevant new regulatory requirements as they come into force in the respective markets.

In response to this situation, Michael Loerzer (GLOBALNORM) and Rudolf Klein (EMV-Testhaus) developed a tool that meets those requirements: ROGER WILLCO.
