Clever Compliance, formerly CE Check, is investing in new digital tools that can help companies more easily procure product certification services and streamline their compliance work. This led AFRY, formerly ÅF Pöyry, to initiate a dialogue for cooperation with Clever Compliance.
In today’s globalised world, companies are required to have more knowledge and time to keep up to date with the changes and updates in the regulations and certifications that apply to their products in the different countries in which they are sold. That is a very resource-intensive activity without a proper compliance support system.
According to Jacob Rydholm, a business unit manager of Specialised Operational Excellence at AFRY, Clever Compliance has developed a remarkable product compliance management system that can significantly improve a company’s product certification activities. The global coverage of the system has enormous potential for creating efficiency and value for companies. The compliance system of Clever Compliance provides complete and quality-assured support for the day-to-day work of compliance engineers.
In addition to the compliance system, the innovative Swedish company has also developed an online compliance marketplace where firms can easily compare different product certification services for markets around the world and get help with their procurement.
Jacob Rydholm further says: “At AFRY, we are a leader in compliance management in the Nordic region. Clever Compliance and we complement each other. Through this collaboration, our consultants will receive effective support which, in turn, will provide our clients with even better service and added value. This collaboration will be of great benefit to us, as well as to the companies involved in product development and production.”
Clever Compliance offers global services in product approval and compliance management tools. The company was founded in 2016 by Tobias Rydell and Max Strålin. They are now in collaboration with Clas Ohlson, TCO Development and GS1 Sweden to develop a new industry standard for the certification industry with blockchain technology.
