●Declaration of conformity and technical documentation
Declaration of conformity
To affix CE marking on a product, the "technical documentation," which states that the product
conforms with the EMC Directive, is required. In most cases, the manufacturer, which
declares the conformity, is not required to submit the declaration to a third party, and only
required to hold the declaration. However, when discontinuing production of a product, the
manufacturer or the authorized representative in the EU must hold the declaration of
conformity and the technical documentation for at least ten years after the date the product
was last manufactured.
The manufacturer or the authorized representative in the EU of the applied product is required
to draw up technical documentation stating that the product is being produced with
conformance and to hold the technical documentation. In this technical documentation, EMC
assessment data and condition as well as the technical explanation for the EMC are included.
The technical documentation must be updated so that it can be submitted to the EU authorities
