Case study: Efficient approach for Chinese manufacturers

Europe is targeting the Chinese market and China is targeting Europe. NMi has entered into a partnership with Shanghai Institute of Measurement and Testing Technology (SIMT) to support our clients in gaining rapid market access.

Clients with production facilities in China or Chinese manufacturers wanted an opening into the European market can use MID Module D. This enables the manufacturer to conduct the initial product inspection (verification) himself under a certified quality system. However, lengthy trips combined with the language barrier often made the certification costly and less efficient. There had to be a better way.

NMi entered into a partnership with SIMT to cut costs and be able to provide services quickly to clients locally. An intensive programme of training courses, seminars and audits was designed to update the Chinese SIMT experts on European requirements. A quality system audit can now be carried out by one NMi auditor (previously two), assisted by an SIMT expert. Furthermore, local experts can explain the subtleties of European regulations in their own language.
