SDoC and Standardization

  • Reduction of Technical Barriers to Trade

    • One Standard : the International Standard

    • One Test : the Mutual Recognition Agreement

    • Simple and reliable certification : the Supplier’s Declaration of Conformity

2


One Standard

  • Use of International Standards every time it is possible (ISO, IEC, ITU)

    • International Standards are the only ones which are recognized globally

    • They result from world-wide consensus

    • They normally offer the best available technology

3


One Standard (2)

  • International Standards are not used similarly everywhere; they have different acceptance levels:

    • recommendations only in some countries

    • mandatory for application in Europe (consequence of Vienna and Dresden agreements)

4


One Standard (3)

  • International Standards are sometimes not applied :

    • ISO Metric System

  • A common status is needed to avoid distortions

5


One Test

  • One shot testing with mutual recognition agreements is the most efficient way to achieve a global circulation of products

    • Multiple testing does not add value to a product

    • Multiple testing adds costs

6


One Test (2)

  • Fair and non-discriminatory implementation of mutual recognition agreements is needed

    • Non recognition of accreditation bodies of the other party will jeopardize the concept

    • Global circulation of products is not possible if everybody does not accept the same rules

7


SDoC

  • Supplier’s Declaration of Conformity

    • Must be reliable to create confidence

    • Liability of the manufacturer : normally always valid, but not the same everywhere

    • Black sheep should be easily eliminated

8


SDoC (2)

  • What is a reliable SDoC ?

    • Must be the same for similar products when issued by two manufacturers A and B in two countries X and Y, whatever A, B, X, Y are

    • Consequently, detailed conditions are linked to the status of the market

  • The sector approach is necessary

9


SDoC (3)

  • How to insure a fair and safe use of SDoC ?

    • Manufacturer liability needs to be harmonized world-wide

    • False SDoCs should be severely punished

10


SDoC (4)

  • In summary what should be done to create good SDoC’s ?

    • Requirements should be defined sector by sector, based on market status

    • Manufacturer liability should be harmonized world-wide

    • Market surveillance should be insured to detect black sheep
