What is ProductIP?

ProductIP enables you to set up and manage product compliance with your supply chain partners in an efficient, transparent and proactive way. Companies use ProductIP because they see compliance management as a means to ensure customer loyalty and stay ahead of the competition. Our product compliance management solution helps you in the process of buying and selling safe and compliant products. How? 

We turn complex product compliance legislation into understandable information, in a process that is in line with what the authorities expect from you. A process that starts with something you need to understand, the product. The result is what is called a technical dossier. You use a technical file to demonstrate product conformity, and your efforts, of a similar range, a family, of products, from one supplier. A technical dossier contains specifications, drawings, test reports and other documents necessary to enable all stakeholders in the supply chain to demonstrate product conformity. 

We also offer informational guides, document templates and much more.

The ProductIP Database

We have the most comprehensive and up-to-date database of product-related technical standards, regulations and requirements. Following our questions and answers, you generate a list of requirements for your specific product. Now you can make informed decisions when buying products, delivering products to your customer or when problems arise in the marketplace.

The ProductIP Platform

By using our web-based solution, you can demonstrate product compliance with database requirements through technical files. With our product compliance management software, you create, manage and share technical files, along with your suppliers and other stakeholders. 

Creation of technical files 

A technical file contains all the evidence needed to demonstrate that a product meets relevant legal and customer requirements. Documents can include certificates, declarations of conformity, test reports, inspection results and more. 


The basis for the technical file is a comprehensive and verified requirements list. This list is generated by ProductIP, based on the answers to a series of questions;

  • what product,
  • when are you putting it on the market (import into the EU)?
  • where do you plan to sell it (make it available to the market)

How to use your technical file for other customers

You are the owner of the technical file. Continue to use the technical file to check the conformity of the product. Share it to other customers when they order products. Use it to check if the requirements list is still relevant for repeat orders.

You can also share (part of) the file with an inspection agency to conduct pre-shipment inspections, or with authorities to demonstrate your compliance efforts. Or generate an EU Declaration of Conformity - "The CE Declaration" - in any of 21 languages in seconds!
