Appendix 3 Instructions for compliance with the EU Directives
The EU Directives are issued to standardize different national regulations of the EU Member States and to facilitate free movement of the
equipment, whose safety is ensured, in the EU territory.
Since 1996, compliance with the EMC Directive that is one of the EU Directives has been legally required. Since 1997, compliance with the
Low Voltage Directive, another EU Directive, has been also legally required. When a manufacturer confirms its equipment to be compliant
with the EMC Directive and the Low Voltage Directive, the manufacturer must declare the conformity and affix the CE marking.
