EU Declaration of Conformity

1. General

The EU declaration of conformity states that the fulfilment of the requirements referred to in § 4 has been demonstrated.

The EU declaration of conformity has to contain the elements listed below and must be constantly updated. It shall be translated into the language or languages which the Member State in which the product is placed on the market is or will be required. In Austria, the EU declaration of conformity is to be presented in German or English.

Where, in accordance with other applicable Union legislation, the implementation of a conformity assessment procedure is required in which at least the same strict criteria are applied, compliance with the requirements laid down in Article 4 may be applied in the framework of: of that procedure. Uniform technical documentation may be drawn up.

In the case of materials, components and electrical and electronic equipment where tests or measurements have been carried out which demonstrate compliance with the requirements of § 4, or which have been assessed in accordance with harmonised standards, the references of which have been assessed in the The Official Journal of the European Union shall be presumed to comply with the requirements of this Regulation.

A harmonised standard is a standard set out in Annex I to Directive 98 /34/EC laying down a procedure for the provision of information in the field of technical standards and regulations and of the rules on information society services, OJ L 206, 22.7.1998, p. No. OJ L 204 of 21.07.1998 p. 37, as last amended by Directive 2006 /96/EC, OJ L 327, 30.12.2006, p. No. 81., which has been drawn up on the basis of a request from the Commission pursuant to Article 6 of Directive 98 /34/EC.

With the exhibition of the EU declaration of conformity, the exhibitor accepts responsibility for the conformity of the electrical or electronic equipment with § 4 bis § 4b of this regulation.
