Not good. But how to change this? Perhaps it starts with an increase of awareness and basic knowledge;

There is so much legislation and regulation that it is almost impossible for a non-specialist to keep up. We understand that. Why should this get in the way of you growing your business? Our team monitors the changes in laws and regulations and ensures that you can start a technical file very quickly based on what you do understand: the product. You will almost instantly get a technical file with a comprehensive and monitored checklist as a core.
The next challenge is to gather the evidence against this list of requirements. What do you need? The requirement list shows what document type you will need to sign off. Now invite your supplier to cooperate via our web interface, free of charge. Do they have questions? We offer support.
Collaboration with your supplier is essential. You are responsible in this part of the market towards your customers, the regulators, other stakeholders. Your supplier should be the product specialist. Working together in the chain is built into ProductIP and ensures that you remain in control. Of course, there will be questions. For this, we have created ProductIPedia. The articles in ProductIPedia give you and your supplier the needed answers in various knowledge levels and languages.
You are only three steps away from improving the future of your business.
Note: You do not need to buy credits in order to respond to a Document Request by your customer HBM Machines.
HBM Machines is working on Social, Product and Packaging Compliance with different partners, each with their own expertise and dedicated solution. ProductIP is the partner of HBM Machines for Product Compliance related aspects. The scope for our service is non-food consumers products.
A declaration has to be signed confirming compliance of the product with the aspects for which there is no compliance evidence available. Then, it is up to HBM Machines to decide if and what corrective action is needed.
Having the relevant compliance evidence available in an organized way is considered a big plus. It should be a technical file for the same product from the same supplier!
ProductIP is a sharing platform for compliance information. You can share your dossier with a customer, like HBM Machines. Also a manufacturer in Asia can start with a dossier, and then share that dossier with you again so you can add things to that, and you have the information for the market regulator. Again, you can share such a received file with the customer. Receiving and sharing is free. Only creating and updating a requirement checklist, the basis of the dossier costs money. Did you know that we monitor the status of all dossiers, including those you received via sharing. So everyone can always see whether the requirement checklist in a dossier is still suitable to support the conformity of a subsequent order!
You can create a dossier based on your own item numbers. At the time of sharing the dossier with your customer, you can indicate what their item numbers are. Important when sharing with HBM Machines is the EAN code. Make sure you include the barcode (EAN) in the 'share' screen. After sharing, the HBM Machines team will review the technical file and provide feedback if (part of) the file is out of order. After adjustments, you can share the technical file again for review.
PS Did you know that ProductIP's document viewer has a built-in redaction tool. You can use it to block references to suppliers (white or black) if necessary. The platform then creates a new document containing a watermark so the recipient knows that, should the need arise, you have the original.
With our offices in the Netherlands, Germany, England, China and Hong Kong, we currently support 27,000 users. The majority are small business owners or small and medium-sized enterprises. They can get on perfectly well with our Pay-As-You-Go model. No significant investments are required. Only spend when there are opportunities. That's fine. But as soon as you approach 270 new product groups per year, and the organisation is somewhat larger, perhaps with international branches, it makes sense to grow into our Enterprise model.
