Impact

Our Commitment to Compliance
The compliance of the products we make available on the market is our priority. We apply countless procedures and controls to make sure that manufacturers comply with the European legislation. We put compliance at the center of our daily work, at every step of the regulatory journey and in every action we undertake.

Empowering SMEs around the World
Over the years, we have helped more than 3,000 manufacturers from more than 70 countries to make available their products on the European markets. We ensure the highest quality of service, and we empower small and medium companies from all around the world to diversify their business and invest in one of the largest markets in the world!

Shaping Safer European Markets
Compliance lies within our DNA. Since 1988, we have been helping shape safer markets through our diverse corporate culture that makes us stronger, helping us meet the needs of our clients from all around the world. Located in Brussels, Belgium, at the heart of the European Union, we are founding members of EU professional associations, and we take an active part in EU Commission working groups.

Accelerating Business Opportunities
We make a difference for our clients by driving their sales forward on the European market and unlocking new business opportunities. Today, we are the largest center for CE marking & European representative services and we stand exactly where we need to be to meet the regulatory challenges of tomorrow and support our clients in their future needs.

Safeguarding EU Consumers
We take great care when it comes to make products available on the European markets. We understand how important it is to go through the regulatory requirements set by the EU legislation in order to ensure compliance for every product and device. With more than 500 million users, the compliance of those products and the safety of consumers are essential. We are here to secure both.

Being human

Corporate Social Responsibility

Together, we Create Compliance
The compliance of products with the EU legislation affects the lives of millions of consumers. That is why we empower our employees, customers and partners to tackle compliance with the utmost attention. This is what we do to bring diverse people together, elevate and impower every voice and give our contribution towards a more sustainable future.

Caring for Sustainability
We celebrate all environmental activities helping to preserve our planet, and we are committed to create a healthy and sustainable environment at our workplace. We have set for ourselves the objective to reduce our impact on the planet by introducing environmental policies and running our operations with sustainability in mind.

Creating Communities
We have launched the O-Community project to enable the exchange of information and awareness around the values we believe in. The community includes current employees and alumni of Obelis Group. We enable people to get involved, build partnerships and create opportunities to make our lives better. We provide support in the following fields: mental health, human rights, cancer, safety and health at work. We have also created digital information platforms to empower manufacturers from all around the world to become compliant with European legislation. We empower every voice in the community: from producers, competent authorities to regualtory experts and conformity assessment bodies.

Supporting cancer Awareness and Research
Obelis serves as a regulatory partner for Horizon 2020, the most significant EU Research and Innovation program, where we have used our expertise for major cancer research and innovation projects. We have also enrolled in a 21-day challenge, which allowed us to learn and be involved in cancer-related activities. This was our way of providing information to our employees to eliminate general misconceptions about diagnosis and treatment.

Responding to Covid-19
We adopted new policies to empower our clients to truly make a difference by rapidly notifying In-Vitro Diagnostic kits, hand sanitizers, facemasks, and other protective equipment. By putting a fast notification system in place, we enabled manufacturers to place their products on the market and patients and users to take advantage of these products. We are doing our part to reduce shortages experienced by hospitals.

Prioritising Mental Health
At Obelis, we raise awareness around the topic of Mental Health, offer support and empower people to realize their full potential. Within our community, we share examples of maintaining positive mental health, explaining how to detect early warning signs, and addressing them. Last October, we organized a special event for our employees and Alumni to take a moment and reflect on our wellbeing and take part in several activities that help maintain a positive state of mind.
