Once you have a product you would like to manufacture or a service you believe people need, a marketing plan is essential in order to launch and sell them successfully. Before placing a product on national, EU or international markets you must make sure that it complies with specific requirements. You will also find information on exporting and importing and on standardisation and environmental labelling.

Use the ‘country’ filter below to refine your search and view country-specific information only. Through the ‘sector’ filter, you can check whether there is information targeting a specific sector in this sub-section.

If you are unable to find country- or sector-specific information, try using other search criteria.

To help with this, we have added tags which enable you to search for specific information throughout the platform, so that you can view all the relevant information on one topic without having to browse through all the sections and sub-sections.

As some information is relevant to both women and men, please keep in mind that some results will target women in particular, while others will be relevant to entrepreneurs in general.
