Anyone selling goods in Germany must comply with many rules. This also applies to imported products. For the legislator, you as the person placing the product on the market in Germany are on an equal footing with the manufacturer, and are liable accordingly. It is therefore absolutely essential to know and comply with the laws and regulations applicable to your product group.

You cannot import without complying with the laws and regulations for your product.
