The EU Lot 9 Standard — A Firmware Update and Review with Mike Cantwell

January 1, 2023

Host of UNICOM Engineering’s Flawless Engineering podcast, Tyler Kern, excitedly welcomed the show’s first guest, Mike Cantwell. As the global regulatory compliance manager with UNICOM, Cantwell is an expert on regulatory processes, including the European Union (EU) Lot 9.
UNICOM works with many software companies to configure branded hardware and ship the finished product to the end customers around the world. The key here is that UNICOM takes care of the entire process, such as ensuring regulatory compliance requirements, customs, and duties are appropriately handled.
“UNICOM Engineering works hard to help our customers, and we do that not just by looking at the regulatory requirements, but all the aspects,” Cantwell stated.
This is important because, by law, these companies must comply or the product could be seized, the company assessed fines, and ultimately, its brand tarnished. By UNICOM handling these nuances upfront, customers are protecting their brand because both company and the end customers can trust the product.
