CE conformity

What does this mean for your operating manuals?
In Germany, the requirements for placing products in the stream of commerce has been changed since 1st of May 2004. Products are deemed to be:

  • Technical materials (machines, etc.)
  • Consumer products

The requirements for products are regulated by the German Devices and Product Safety Act [Geräte- und Produktsicherheitsgesetz] (GPSG) and the GPSG regulations (e.g. 9 GPSGV).

The Technical Plant and Equipment Act (GSG) and the Product Safety Act (ProdSG) are no longer in force with effect from 1st of May 2004.

One of the main requirements, for example, is the CE mark which again can only be granted if operating manuals complying with EC regulations are available.
