By minimizing complexities and uncertainties, we help you save valuable time and resources, empowering you to concentrate on your core business activities.
Navigating the Complexity of Legislation
Understanding what the law requires can be intricate, particularly with numerous CE/UKCA regulations to consider. It is crucial to distinguish what is applicable and what is not. The scope of these 20 plus items of legislation for both the UK and EU can be time-consuming and often uncertain when determining if your product or machine falls within scope or qualifies for an exclusion.
You may be surprised to learn that CE/UKCA marking follows a self-certification process for the vast majority of products. While the machinery legislation lists 23 specific machine types requiring third-party notified body involvement, the scope of these machines is narrow. As a result, most machines under the machinery legislation do not require external certification.
Our Support Services Cover:
01. Self-Certification Guidance
For the majority of products, we ensure you understand and follow the self-certification process, saving time and resources.
02. Legislation Scope Identification
We help you identify the applicable high-level legislation and discern which regulations are relevant to your machinery products.
03. Harmonized/Designated Standards
Understand the specific harmonized/designated standards that apply to your product or machinery, ensuring you meet all necessary requirements.
04. Compliance Gap Assessment
Our experts conduct a comprehensive assessment to identify any non-compliances and guide you on how to rectify them effectively.
05. Technical File Support
We assist you in reviewing and building a robust technical file that justifies compliance, an essential component of the CE/UKCA marking process.
