SCHEDULE 2Module A: internal production control

1.  Internal production control is the conformity assessment procedure whereby the manufacturer fulfils the obligations laid down in paragraphs 2 to 5 of this Schedule, and ensures and declares on the manufacturer’s sole responsibility that the apparatus concerned satisfies the requirements of these Regulations that apply to it.

Electromagnetic compatibility assessment

2.  The manufacturer must perform an electromagnetic compatibility assessment of the apparatus, on the basis of the relevant phenomena, with a view to meeting the essential requirements set out in paragraph 1 of Schedule 1.

3.  The electromagnetic compatibility assessment must take into account all normal intended operating conditions. Where the apparatus is capable of taking different configurations, the electromagnetic compatibility assessment must confirm whether the apparatus meets the essential requirements set out in paragraph 1 of Schedule 1 in all the possible configurations identified by the manufacturer as representative of its intended use.

Technical documentation

4.  The manufacturer must establish the technical documentation. The documentation must make it possible to assess the conformity of the apparatus to the relevant requirements, and must include an adequate analysis and assessment of the risks.

5.  The technical documentation must specify the applicable requirements and cover, as far as relevant for the assessment, the design, manufacture and operation of the apparatus. The technical documentation must, wherever applicable, contain at least the following elements—

In the event of a partly applied harmonised standard, the technical documentation must specify the parts of the standard that have been applied;

(e)results of design calculations made, examinations carried out, etc.;

(f)test reports.

CE marking and EU declaration of conformity

7.  The manufacturer must affix the CE marking to each individual apparatus that satisfies the applicable requirements of these Regulations,

8.  The manufacturer must draw up a written EU declaration of conformity for an apparatus model and keep it together with the technical documentation at the disposal of the national authorities for 10 years after the apparatus has been placed on the market. The EU declaration of conformity must identify the apparatus model for which it has been drawn up.

Impact Assessments

Impact Assessments generally accompany all UK Government interventions of a regulatory nature that affect the private sector, civil society organisations and public services. They apply regardless of whether the regulation originates from a domestic or international source and can accompany primary (Acts etc) and secondary legislation (SIs). An Impact Assessment allows those with an interest in the policy area to understand:

  • Why the government is proposing to intervene;
  • The main options the government is considering, and which one is preferred;
  • How and to what extent new policies may impact on them; and,
  • The estimated costs and benefits of proposed measures.
