We can advise and help you with the process of producing and maintaining the Technical Documentation required for products you manufacture which fall within the scope of the EMC Directive (2014/30/EU).
Technical Documentation must demonstrate that a product (or product family) meets the essential requirements of the EMC Directive.
Manufacturers Technical Documentation has to include
- A description of the product (this will be needed in any case for an instruction manual or publicity materials)
- Evidence of compliance of the apparatus with the essential EMC requirements (usually by testing to harmonised standards)
- For more complicated products, evidence may include: EMC Management, Control and Test Plans
Extended Justification will be needed:
- For equipment lacking applicable harmonised standards
- For cases where the manufacturer has only applied a standard in part
- For large equipment or installed systems where testing to standards is impractical and on-site or in-situ testing has to be performed
- Where there are a large number of product variants and individual testing is uneconomic
As a manufacturer’s option a Notified Body report can be included, which independently assesses all or part of the Technical Documentation.
