The UK Health Authority has strongly indicated that Notifications (and the data within them) will be reviewed in ‘good faith’. Even if you are not 100% compliant by November 2016 but have a compliance plan in place we are hopeful that this will be viewed by Health Authorities as a more favourable position to be in than companies who have done nothing.
Selling on the ‘black market’ is a very risky option.
Reduce your risk - Make sure your products comply
With each Notification submitted you will be making a declaration that
…the manufacturer and importer bear the full responsibility for the quality and safety of the products when placed on the market.
