“With the Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) expected to come into effect in 2017, Canadian companies that start planning now will have a huge advantage to grow their business successfully in Europe and beyond,” says Simon Knight, Products Manager, Canada for Intertek.
Intertek offers quality and safety services to businesses to help improve their products and make them more successful in their chosen markets.
“Once business leaders understand the path to global market access, we can help them design their products for export success,” says Chris Thompson, principal consultant at Intertek Consulting Services. The testing and certification of their products is part of the regulatory compliance activities that any company engages in to confirm their products meet or exceed performance standards.”
In the case of Europe, companies need to comply with CE Marking, the EU’s safety, health and environmental requirements.
“There is a gap in the market regarding what the CE Mark is and when you should start preparing for export,” says Emiliano Introcaso, National Program Manager, Global Business Services at Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters. This webinar will give clarity to Canadian businesses that are curious about exporting to Europe.”
Join Matt Quinn and Chris Thompson from Intertek on February 17th as they introduce what the European market access involves, the key aspects of developing a business case, and what is involved in getting a valid CE Mark to allow products to be traded in the European Economic Area without restrictions.
