    Why appoint Qarad as your Authorized Representative?

    Qarad is an independent organization. This keeps your commercial and regulatory interests in Europe separated. It allows you to give all your European distributors and O.E.M. customers independent regulatory support. It is not recommended to appoint a distributor as your Authorized Representative.

    A good EC REP is more than a mailbox. He guides you through the regulations, assists you in the case of regulatory action against your company and communicates to the competent authorities. This requires a unique mix of regulatory, technical-scientific and communication skills.

    Qarad’s team has the adequate experience and qualities.

    Qarad is a member of the European Association of Authorized Representatives and subscribes to its Code of Conduct.
