I would want to buy some of the chrome plated Knitter's Pride Nova Platina DPNS but only if I find a European supplier. Do you know about anyone selling them?

You'll find KnitPro do most of the needles and hooks that Knitter's Pride do, very smilar, just slightly different names. All the main on line yarn stores here stock them (however I notice that not so many of them as many metal as rosewood etc) You don't mention the length you're after, but a set of 5 x 10cm are available on ebay for £4.10 - £4.65. They are call KnitPro Nova. Otherwise you could check the UK site of Knitter's Pride to see if they can help.

Just be aware that if you buy from eBay they aren't covered by warranty. But if from an approved retailer it should be a life time warranty for Knit Pro

There is a huge difference between KnitPro Nova and Knitter's Pride Nova Platina: the first one is nickel plated and the second one is chrome plated. As I had an allergic reaction to my wedding ring, I am a bit afraid to buy nickel plated needles. Knitter's Pride Nova Platina would be the perfect needles for me.

Perhaps you can contact Knitters Pride and ask who is selling them in Europe

You would need to be careful but Monday a friend was saying she loves the nickel plated DPNs and is allergic to nickel but for reason it doesn't cause an issue for her. Of course just because OK for her doesn't mean it will be but if get the chance to knit with a pair you might find they work OK. She can't wear jewellery with nickel in it.

The other option to avoid any allergies would be to go with rosewood?

There is only one reason why I am interested in Nova Platina DPNS: I want really slippery needles. I hate grip. The more slippery the needles are, the less I work with feeding the stitches and instead all energy goes into knitting. I am thus much faster with slippery needles.
