How to proceed?
Before submitting a certification application:
- Make sure you have performed all the necessary tests in accordance with the applicable standards in force
- Identify the risk category of the footwear
- Prepare the necessary technical documentation: technical file and instructions for use
At the end of the certification process, affix the CE marking to the PPE and prepare the EU Declaration of conformity (Annex IX to Regulation (EU) 2016/425).
Keep the EU declaration of conformity and the technical documentation for 10 years from when the PPE is placed on the market.
Does the certificate have an expiry date?
