Market Access

Accessing the market with a food product (animal or plant based) or tobacco products, cosmetics, and other commodities, BVL issues authorizations, since it’s in charge of many tasks in this area. It grants authorizations and jointly coordinates monitoring programs with the Federal States.

However, every product is different, so the success of your company relies on a tailored market access approach. Introducing suchlike products to the German market can be a demanding time for producers and distributors; since BVL notification can be a long and puzzling undertaking.

Whether your product must be registered, or a BVL notification is adequate or no actions are required should be analyzed in detail.
