Declaration of Conformity (DoC) Checking

Market surveillance across the EU has shown that administrative compliance levels are low in some industry sectors, with non-existent or invalid Declarations of Conformity (DoCs) being a significant factor.

As a market leader for the provision of testing and compliance services we can check and advise on the status of your DoCs.

As part of this service, we will advise you as to whether the DoC contains the necessary information, whether the information is still up to date and any remedial work necessary to ensure your product remains compliant.

A DoC is a legally binding document which states that the product meets the essential requirements of the applicable New Approach Directives. Failure to meet the Conformity Assessment Requirements is, under UK law, a criminal offence.

Furthermore, should Trading Standards or indeed a customer, suspect that a DoC is invalid; this may lead to a more detailed investigation of product compliance and may result in reduced confidence in the product itself.

A manufacturer can only legally put a CE mark on equipment if it meets the requirements of all applicable directives. Every piece of equipment sold must have an accompanying DoC.

Minimum requirements of a Declaration of Conformity include:

  • Which Directives are applicable to this particular product
  • Name of the manufacturer
  • Any European representative of the manufacturer
  • List any EN harmonized standards used
  • Signed and dated by a responsible person who can confirm that the contents of the DoC are true.

A manufacturer should regularly review their DoCs as changes to standards or changes to the product can invalidate a Declaration of Conformity.

Alternatively, if you require a whole documentation chain Product Compliance Health check, please contact us.
