Are there any specific regulations in Germany for importing electricity monitors?

Question posted by Emily Poulton, on behalf of Energeno Ltd in EC1Y

We manufacture electricity monitors and we are interested in starting to trade in Germany. We are CE certified and WEE certified. Is there anything else we need?

Hi Emily,

Thank you for your question.

Mark's email address is mark.hughes-kemper@fco.gov.uk His phone number is 49 (0)211 9448-157

I've taken a look at the Germany pages on the UKTI website, www.ukti.gov.uk There is a Doing Business in Germany pdf which mentions Germany has a Standards Institute, Deutsches Institute fur Normung e.V. www.din.de They have information on technical regulations, so might be of use.

Hope that this helps.

Regards,

Thank you both.
I need to know whether our product can be sold in Germany with the CE and WEEE labels or if we need an additional certification.

Hi Emily,

I just joined open to export so may be too late to answer your question. But, yes The CE mark is basically what you need. You may need to register on a WEEE scheme in Germany.

Kind regards,

Hi Emily - it's an oldish thread so I guess you are sorted but if you do need information on regulations like this, it's worth contacting your local Enterprise Europe Network office and making an enquiry for the country in question. It's a free service and very efficient.
