Noise emissions for outdoor equipment - declaration of conformity
EC declaration of conformity
Following Directive 2000/14/EC of the European Parliament and the Council of 8 May 2000 concerning the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to the noise emission in the environment by equipment for use outdoors and throughout the Single Market, it is now a legal obligation for manufacturers to accompany their equipment with a EC Declaration of Conformity (DoC) saying that the equipment is in conformity with the provisions of this directive and any other pertinent directives.
The European Commission services have developed an electronic form for EC Declaration of Conformity.
NOISE, an on-line tool for manufacturers, authorised representatives, Member States and Notified Bodies to send and manage DoCs, is available now: see the Quick Guide to Using NOISE [439 KB] [439 KB] .
