Do you import products with an e-mark on the packaging from outside the European Union? If so, it is important that you comply with the e-mark requirements and Commodities Act. As an importer, you have two options for checking this:
- In compliance with the Commodities Act, you take random samples from the imported batches. Based on the result, you then assess whether the batch complies with the e-mark regulations. You must have your own e-mark accreditation.
- NMi evaluates the quality system of the packaging company outside the EU. If the system meets the requirements, the packaging company concerned receives a Certificate of Recognition. NMi then performs an obligatory inspection every year. We provide your importer in the Netherlands with accreditation containing a reference to your Certificate of Recognition.
