Integra Technology is a dynamic company providing compliance and consulting services to designers, importers and buyers of new and innovative products.
Compliance requirements are wide ranging and often confusing, encompassing technical standards, chemical testing and stringent national requirements.
Product compliance is key to ensuring both the safety of your technology and your ability to sell into your target markets Potential customers can be very demanding in their Due Diligence requirements for potential new suppliers of technology. The inability to supply this key information can block potential sales and reflects on the professionalism of the supplier.
In a factory environment, almost every machine purchased is altered in some way to suit its environment. It may be incorporated into a production line or additional guarding fitted to enhance safety. Either way, advice from the Health & Safety Executive is for the user to assess the safety of all machinery both to Supply Law and User Law.
Within our organisation we have an excellent practical knowledge of taking innovative, un-standardised products from concept design to final market, experience which we can draw on to help you get your new product selling.
Integra Technology has vast experience in all of these areas and can assist in ensuring that you are compliant and professional in your product presentation to the market.
The affixing of a CE mark is a declaration that a product meets all EU requirements in terms of Health, Safety and Environment.
CE marking forms the basis of product compliance in Europe. It is an absolute requirement for selling most machines and devices within the EU. A CE mark is affixed to a product based on its compliance with EU consumer safety, health or environmental requirements. This includes (but is not restricted to) meeting the requirements of technical standards, noise and vibration levels and Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC).
Whether you have designed, manufactured or imported a device or product, it is essential that it is CE marked in order to take it to market. Integra specialise in innovative products for which no relevant technical standards exist – where there are no technical standards relevant to a new product, CE marking is based on the demonstrated assessment and control of risks. Integra Technology are experienced in assessing products and ensuring that a CE mark can be affixed.
Beyond CE marking, products must also be compliant with a number of other national and EU requirements. These can be significant barriers to market; buyers and retailers request proof of compliance as part of their Due Diligence and it is essential that this key information is available to be supplied.
