Conformity assessment procedure (Annex III- Internal production control):

Technical Documentation

The manufacturer puts together the technical documentation which makes it possible to assess whether the electrical equipment complies with the requirements of the directive. It contains at least the elements set out in the Annex III.

The essential requirements

The essential requirements cover all risks arising from the use of electrical equipment, including not just electrical ones but also mechanical, chemical (such as, in particular, emission of aggressive substances), health aspects of noise and vibration, and ergonomic aspects which could cause hazard within the scope of the LVD Directive.


Non-compliance with the directive’s requirements will result in the removal of the apparatus from the market and the revoking of the CE marking affixed on the electrical equipment.
