BHETA to host webinar on new EU export regulation

BHETA will hold another of its international trade webinars on Friday 23 February at 10am.

The webinar will explore the implications of EU Regulation 2023/988 which will be enforced from December 2024, and aims to ensure all non-food products sold online or offline, are safe. The speaker is Tim Hiscock, international trade advisor from Strong & Herd.

The most significant change, which all exporters to the EU should be aware of, is that from December, all products entering the EU, must have an economic operator in the EU responsible for safety issues.

While the law doesn’t affect products already covered by other safety rules, it does mean that in effect, suppliers that do not carry the CE mark and are not covered by other safety legislation, must act to comply with the new requirements by having an EU address capable of providing customer service support.

Regulation 2023/988 also:

  • Brings together conditions for online and offline sales
  • Steps up the enforcement powers of national governments
  • Introduces new requirements on product recalls

BHETA’s webinar will outline the actions suppliers need to take and will include a Q&A session.

BHETA’s marketing director, Steve Richardson, commented: “Regulations 2023/988 has big implications for exporters into the EU, particularly smaller suppliers, so it’s good that BHETA can advise.

“Strong & Herd is one of BHETA’s business service providers and is an excellent source of information and advice on all aspects of international trade.”
