NLF interpretative fiche 20 - Updates of CA certificates on product variations

Published: 10 September 2014

Policies & Issues: Internal Market - Compliance, Standards & Enforcement

Orgalime requests the Commission to ensure that manufacturers will still be able to receive updates of existing conformity assessment certificates on product variations, even after the repeal of revised-aligned Directives, under which the original certificates were issued. This should apply to all aligned Directives that require the participation of a notified body for the conformity assessment procedure. We use the example of updates of certificates issued under Directive ATEX 94/9 on this interpretative fiche to illustrate the issue.
