Separate registration by each importer

Some European suppliers are using either non-exclusive importers/distributors or using different distrubutors for different market segments. Currently, each importer has to register the products despite the products already being approved and registered by another importer. This creates additional administrative work. The EBC would like for there to be a system where the brand owner can appoint several importers that can share a registration


  • Japan should create a system where a product registration can be shared by multiple appointed importers.
