    1. Dear Dr. Parisio, absolutely! Please contact Certiquality for the details. The approach is really practical, but I will examine the full regulation, included some general issues about free movement of goods, mutual recognition and responsibilities.
      For more “legal” discussions I will be happy to have a cup of coffee together!

      Best wishes,
