The CE marking is essential for a market launch in Europe. By affixing the CE marking, the manufacturer confirms that the product complies with all European directives relevant to it.
To obtain a CE mark, products with radio technologies must meet the requirements of the European Radio Equipment Directive 2014/53/EU (RED). This directive sets the legal framework for all products with radio technologies. Key defined requirements are health and safety, electromagnetic compatibility and efficient use of radio frequencies. Manufacturers and suppliers of these products to the EU market must demonstrate compliance with RED through a type examination certificate based on technical documentation (TD) or a self declaration (DoC) and affix the CE marking.
When deviating from harmonized standards or when they do not exist, a notified body can establish specific test specifications and help define the appropriate test plans. In the case of non-harmonized (country-specific) frequency ranges, it can provide support so that manufacturers can bring their products to market.
A notified body has the task of assessing products covered by the RED with regard to their technical conformity. The result is a type examination certificate that is recognized in all states of the European Union as well as in the EFTA states as the basis of a manufacturer’s DoC.
As a notified body for RED and EMC, we can support you in the CE marking process and help you gain access to the European market. Although a self-declaration procedure is allowed, some products require an independent conformity assessment by the notified body. If harmonized standards are deviated from or do not exist, a notified body must be involved. If you are not familiar with the procedure, it is recommended to involve a notified body on a voluntary basis.
Devices designed for outdoor use shall meet the requirements of EN 60950-22, as the standards EN 62368-1 and EN 60950-1, for example, do not adequately cover these requirements.
The Notified Body only accepts test reports from accredited laboratories or laboratories that have been audited by cetecom advanced GmbH according to the requirements of ISO/IEC EN 17025 with regard to the measuring equipment used and the competence of the employees.
In principle yes -the prerequisite for this is an appropriate accreditation or an audit by cetecom advanced GmbH or an on-site measurement by cetecom advanced personnel.
