Title: Conformity marking
Post by: stefano.t on October 29, 2015, 02:45:13 PM
Hi all,

In order to produce and distribute PowerPC notebook in various countries, conformity declaration must applied:
Has anyone considered to perform conformity tests in a thirdy part laboratory (very expensive, more than 20k euro), or do we simply apply the self certification?
Honestly speaking, I don't know if a notebook can be self-certified; if anyone has access to marking requirements, please add the necessary informations.

I believe that in the EU, provided that whatever you manufacture contains only parts which are CE marked, the equipment is regarded as being CE marked.
This seems to be the case for electrical control panels, anyway

Hi Freddy,

thanks for your contribution. You're partially right, because CE mark inheritance is valid only for indipendent devices connected together, but isn't valid for single components or module. (I'm quite sure this rule is valid also for FCC, but I have yo check).

Let's take some examples:

Another example, about WiFi Module:

I hope I've been useful.
