About this Seminar

Helping you understand key market access requirements and latest regulatory changes needed to expand your product’s reach into global markets.

Manufacturers, supplies, retailers, are challenged to ensure that their products meet the necessary requirement for access into global markets. With constantly changing requirements and the absence of harmonized standards, you need to be aware of the regulations for each country/market you want to access.

This Global Market Access Sip & Learn will teach you best practices in achieving market entry quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively. You’ll gain insights into regulatory requirements, documentation, application guidelines, key product categories, and marking requirements in key markets for product safety and wireless approvals of IT, Multimedia, Wireless, and IoT products.

MET’s Global Market Access and Wireless compliance experts will help you understand necessary compliance requirements and latest regulatory changes needed to expand your product’s access to global markets.
