Such basic requirements are specified in European directives for the relevant product lines. The products are from a “harmonized area”. The requirements for such products are specified in harmonized standards – they are subject to uniform rules within the EU market. The products are marked with CE after the conformity assessment and the producer issues an EC declaration of conformity. Notified bodies participate in the evaluation of conformity in defined cases.
