REGULATION (EC) No 765/2008 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL

setting out the requirements for accreditation and market surveillance relating to the marketing of products and repealing Regulation (EEC) No 339/93

DECISION No 768/2008/EC OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL

on a common framework for the marketing of products, and repealing Council Decision 93/465/EEC

Already reflected to:

DIRECTIVE 2009/48/EC OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCILon the safety of toys

entering into force 20th June 2011

New legal framework for the CE marking

slide3

CE marking –general principles:

Regulation 765/2008

CE marking

  • shall be affixed only by themanufacturer or his authorized representative
  • affixation =responsibility for conformity
  • the only markingwhich indicatescompliance with Community harmonised legislation assuming its affixing
  • relation withother markings
  • responsibility for member statesto protect the CE marking
slide4

CE marking and Europe's market is yours!–if

  • You are a manufacturer or his authorized representative
  • You have an internal system of quality
  • Your goods are in compliance with harmonized standardshttp://ec.europa.eu/enterprise/policies/european-standards/documents/harmonised-standards-legislation/index_en.htm

in the whole range of risks, that a productmay pose

  • You issue an EC declaration of conformityandaffix theCE marking to the product as a compliance with Community harmonised legislative

Risk assessment by the manufacturer

against the EHSR

slide5

CE marking and Europe's market is yours!–if

  • You are a manufacturer or his authorized representative
  • Your goods are not in compliance with harmonized standards

http://ec.europa.eu/enterprise/policies/european-standards/documents/harmonised-standards-legislation/index_en.htm

in the whole range of risks, that a product may pose

  • You turn to the accredited conformity assessment body
  • You use CAB assessment results whenissuing the EC declaration of conformityandaffix the CE marking to the product as a compliance with Community harmonised legislative

After the revision of

New Approach

directives

CE marking

Be prepared in time

slide6

Europe's market is yours!–if

After the revision of

New Approach

directives

Be prepared in time

Regulation 764/2008/EC on mutual recognition

  • You are an importer, or you're placing a product to the market and you're not sure in if the product does fall under the Community harmonised legislative
  • Contact National contact point for goods at www.productinfo.sk
  • The certificate issued by accredited laboratory opens the markets also when the product is not covered by Community harmonised legislative
  • You can apply the rule of mutual recognition (see 764/2008/EC)
slide7

The protection of CE marking

  • Market surveillance authorities shall control if the affixing and use of CE marking is correct and whether the principles for the next markings and signs are respected
  • Market surveillance authoritiesnotify to EC:
    • if they decide to restrict the free movement of product because of incorrect affixation of CE marking
    • to take measures relating to misleading CE marking
  • The market surveillance authorities are also thecustoms authorities – in the case of counterfeiting of CE marking they shall be entitled to act outside the regime of free circulation of goods - after registering CE marking as aprotective trademark of Community
  • CE marking
  • Function of market
  • surveillance
  • authorities
slide8

EC opinion on the CE marking

  • CE marking is a declaration that the product is safe for its intended use and meets all relevant technical requirements
  • Due to the ignorance of real mission of CE marking, this marking doesn't often have an influence or impact on consumers decision to purchase the product

CE marking -

opinion of EC (1)

slide9

EC opinion on the CE marking

  • Therefore, the EC intends to eliminate this low awareness by broad-basedinformation campaignto improve public awareness of real mission of the CE marking
  • In addition, the EC intendsto register CE marking as a common communitarian trademark, which would lead to greater supervisory powers in legal actions against those who misuse the CE marking
