  1. I.T. Symposium, Geneva, 16th July 1999. Supplier’s Declaration of Conformity (SDoC) and Standardization Michel de Vecchis Director, Standardization Telecom Product Division Cables & Components Sector

  2. 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

  3. 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

  4. 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

  5. One Standard (3) • International Standards are sometimes not applied : • ISO Metric System • A common status is needed to avoid distortions 5

  6. 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

  7. 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

  8. 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

  9. 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

  10. 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

  11. 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 11
