About Us

Your trusted partner for expansion into European markets

Back in 1988, our CEO Mr. Gideon Elkayam founded Obelis: a small, family-run business with a grand vision to “create compliance for safer markets”.

Located within walking distance of the EEC Headquarters in Brussels, we worked closely with the EU institutions from the early days.

Over the years, the original vision has helped us build a unique standing in the regulatory community and it’s helped us achieve a high rate of success in representing over 3000 exporters from more than 60 countries around the world.

Today, we are proud to say that we’ve helped to shape the compliance industry here. As a result, we provide the most effective processes for helping our clients achieve what’s necessary to sell and maintain their products on the European market.

We’ve kept our eyes firmly on the original goal. And helping our clients navigate the maze of regulations that create safer markets has won us so many friends around the world.

“We see ourselves not only as your consultant on EU regulations but as a partner in helping you grow. We stay by your side on your journey into Europe.”

Your Consultants on EU Regulations

Our main service areas, medical devices, IVDs, cosmetics, and food supplements generally require specialist consultation due to the complexities of regulations.

Our team of lawyers, chemists, pharmacists and other experts collaborate to provide a combination of representative services, CE marking, and compliance consultation.

However, we also provide more general consultation on EU regulations for other finished products intended for introduction into Europe.

Our compliance frameworks and processes are similarly focused on getting aspiring non-European exporters ready to expand into European markets.

Some examples of other sectors we consult for include:
