International Approval Services

Every country has separate standards for products that are sold within their vicinity. International compliance is a broad term that covers the entire gamut of product requirements that a country holds in order for items to be sold or distributed within their region of authority. A company’s product must have the approval of a country’s governing body in order to sell their product within their region.


Figuring out how to distribute your product in another country can be difficult and confusing. Each country has its own ordinance and each industry maintains specific product testing and compliance regulations. Gaining the approval to sell or distribute a product inside of another country requires time, money, research and resources.
