CELAB Srl, in addition to being a member of the REDCA (European Working Group of Notified Bodies for the drafting of the R&TTE Directive), is also Italian office of CELAB Ltd, Notified Body RTTE (1999/5/EC) Nr. 2559.
Examples of objects to which the Directive applies:
Products with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Technology
GSM, GPS, UMTS
Medical Devices using the technologies listed
Machines using the technologies listed
The scope is so vast.
The Directive applies in all cases in which a single component already CE marked is installed within a product.
This does not imply that the product complies with the R&TTE Directive, therefore it is necessary to carry out activities for the purposes of CE marking on the entire finished product.
This Directive provides for the use of the notified body in the REQUIRED form for radio products that do not use the harmonized standards (ie. whenever there are similar products, when you have not done all the tests, or when you are in possession of CE marking only of the transmitter module installed in your device).
The activity consists of the evaluation of the technical construction file by issuing a technical opinion in which CELAB, as notified body, issues a certificate stating that the technical file satisfies the requirements of the R&TTE directive.
The process of obtaining certification as a Notified Body does not send the physical product in CELAB, but only the documentation of the technical dossier by email.
It also points out that the use of the notified body in most cases is not only mandatory, but also cheaper than the laboratory tests for the R&TTE directive.
