As a class 1 (not 1R,1S,1M) product manufacturer, located outside the EU. We have an importer and are about to sign up with an Authorised Representative, but do we as the manufacturer also have to notify competent authorities in each of the EU countries that the product will be sold in or, do we notify the competent authority in the country of the importer only?

Your EU-rep should notify the competent authorities on your behalf; they are familiar with the local process for registration. Just contact them and let them know in which member states you intend to sell your products.

Thanks Shimon, that would make sense but it's opposite to what I was told hence my question to the group. I was told it's the manufacturers responsibility to register with the competent authority but I never found out if I have to register in each separate country. Thanks for your help.

That's why you have the EU-rep. Registration in the member state is done by filling forms in the local language (German, Italian, France, etc.).
Yes, you can do it yourself but it's not worth your attention. It's a relatively cheap service so I recommend asking the EU-rep to do it for you.
