Self certification is possible for some products. It varies per product; it’s intended use and applicable directive (s) and whether harmonized standards covers all relevant safety aspects of the product. For products with a relatively low security risk, the manufacturer’s can carry out the safety assessment procedures and compiling the required documentation.

Where compliance of a product with the applicable requirements has been demonstrated by that procedure, manufacturers shall draw up an EC declaration of conformity and a CE Mark shall be affixed as referred to the applicable directive.
