9. You need documents
- You must have a technical file available for the product. This is a file that contains all relevant information to demonstrate compliance with the applicable CE marking directives.
- It is imperative that you hold these documents for 10 years after the last product has been sold. Logistically, this is not an easy task.
- Only an enforcement officer has the right to see your technical file. It is not a requirement to provide your file to anyone purchasing the product.
- You are, however, required to provide a copy of the product’s Declaration of Conformity.
