Companies involved in retail and trade are increasingly being challenged by customers, shareholders, NGO's and market surveillance authorities about issues with products. Every day there are issues with the safety of products, with substances that are restricted, with energy consumption that is not in line with regulations. The regulatory agenda is becoming more and more complex and, because of adding more and more technologies, so are products. Not being able to cope with this is potentially hampering your growth and reducing bottom line results. These are aspects of businesses that management needs to control.
We convert complex regulatory information into a step by step approach that starts with what you will understand: a product. You will then know what questions to ask to your suppliers, what documents they need to upload directly in a structured way instead of sharing this in an uncontrolled way via e-mails. MatchIt, our built-in intelligence, offers a complete new approach to how to review documents. You don't need to learn new skills, you do need to be determined!
Deal with product compliance in a structured, efficient and proactive way. Make the right choices on suppliers and raw materials. Secure the quality of your product range. Control costs and mitigate risks at the same time. Your product compliance team deserves the best tool available. One that comes without investment in IT or staff. And enables you to start in only 5 minutes.
We guide people with different roles in the supply chain. Each with their own responsibilities and challenges. We provide guiding on what you should do, training & education and offer assistance to help everyone in the chain take ownership of their responsibilities.
By knowing the role or roles you own in the chain, you can take ownership of the responsibilities and challenges that comes with the role(s). We're gonna be honest with you, it's not magic that we offer. You still have to put in work, we enable you to speed up your work and multiply the work you can do.
Each company is different but they all share the same challenges.
We offer you the tools to stay in control and do more with the same amount of resources. You decide how much work you want to do, you can outsource all kinds of compliance related work to ProductIP. You can up- and downgrade the amount of work you'll do and how much we do for you!

What information should be included on the product packaging and labeling in order to comply with applicable legislation?
Educate yourself & save money at the same time. The Chemical Risk Assessment evaluates your Bill of Material and gives you insight on what substances you should and shouldn't test.
