Authorised Representative services
SafeMech can fulfil the role of Authorised Representative or simply the role of Person Authorised to
compile the Technical File. We would not act as full commercial representative but could handle technical aspects
of compliance if required.
Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC requires that a Declaration of Conformity must state an EU address from
which enforcement authorities can obtain a copy of the Technical File for the Equipment. This is called the "Person
authorised to compile the Technical File".
This requirement is likely to be extended to other CE marking Directives in future.
The Directive also allows for a manufacturer established outside the EU to act as their "Authorised
Representative" within the EU. The role of Authorised Representative can be defined by contract and could stretch
from full commercial representation to only acting as Person authorised to compile the Technical File.
We do not charge the silly fees demanded by some organisations!
