TÜV SÜD has appointed Robert Campling to lead its UK Global Market Access (GMA) service, which helps manufacturers of electrical and electronic products enter multiple international markets more quickly.
Robert has nine years’ GMA experience, joining TÜV SÜD from Underwriters Laboratories where he was GMA Operations Leader for nearly six years. TÜV SÜD’s UK-based GMA team manage the entire compliance process, ensuring that manufacturers, exporters and retailers meet country-specific requirements for seamless market entry across multiple countries. As the team has direct relationships with global regulatory authorities, and TÜV SÜD’s own international network of laboratories, time-to-market and costs are minimised.
The absence of harmonised standards creates complexities for manufacturers as they must comply with multiple regulations for each country they wish to access. TÜV SÜD’s UK GMA service delivers a global compliance roadmap to simplify this complexity across multiple industry sectors, including automotive, components, consumer, medical and telecoms.
Robert Campling, Manager for Global Market Access at TÜV SÜD UK, said: “As markets become increasingly global, businesses of every size face the very real challenge of coping with the complex range of technical regulations and diverse compliance requirements. TÜV SÜD’s GMA service helps manufacturers and suppliers to prove compliance much more efficiently, reducing both the time and cost associated with global markets. Our UK team will strengthen TÜV SÜD’s European-wide GMA offering, ensuring that no matter where our customers are based we can manage the entire compliance process for them.”
