What are the benefits of proactive adoption?
Early engagement helps you to avoid unforeseen costs and/or delays. Remember, products not in compliance as of the 2019 deadline may not be sold in many of the biggest and most lucrative global markets. Early engagement offers several competitive advantages:
- Reduce manufacturing costs.
- Increase flexibility in design and construction.
- Take advantage of a decreased number of regional and national differences.
- Introduce new technology and products to market more quickly.
- Leverage your compliance in your marketing activities.
- Avoid problems associated with a last-minute rush for compliance.
The earlier you begin to focus on this transition, the more your business will benefit from the new standard.
