3. The law is the law, but standards are not

  • • The directive requirements are only very general requirements and can be difficult for designers to apply to a specific product.
  • • Standards provide much more detail and are written by people from within the industry for specific products or situations. This makes them a very useful tool in CE marking compliance.
  • • Unlike the directives, standards can be changed much more easily and so represent current state of the art, and can adapt with technology.
  • • Standards can also be ignored. Whilst they are a useful way to demonstrate compliance, they are not the only route and so it is possible to show compliance by other means.
