BREXIT

Preserve the legal character of the products

 

 

Introduction

 

In case of a BREXIT without an agreement with the European Union, every CE-CPR certificate delivered by a notified body (NoBo) established in Great-Britain becomes invalid on the day Great-Britain leave the EU.

 

This means that all those certificates have to be transferred to a NoBo established in the EU before that date in order to see to it that the concerned product still complies with the European legislation about the free circulation of goods. This concerns the placement on the market of the product in the EU-27 after the exit date and not the products already present in the EU-27 before that date.

 

Impact on the BOSEC certificates

 

Since the BOSEC certification is based on the CE-CPR certificate for all the products having a harmonized standard, the preservation of the BOSEC certificate is directly linked to the preservation of the CE-CPR. This is also the case for all the products having harmonized product standards listed in a BOSEC EN 54-13 certificate.

 

Treatment of the transition

 

ANPI proposes to take over the CE-CPR certificates delivered by the British NoBo’s under its own NoBo number (1134). The modalities for this transfer, depending on the fact whether the product already possesses a BOSEC component or BOSEC EN 54-13 certificate or not, are mentioned below.

 

The holder of the British certificate communicates the following documents to ANPI:

 

Action

BOSEC

component

BOSEC

EN 54-13

non-BOSEC

DoP of the product

 

 

x

CE-CPR certificate to be transferred

 

 

x

Technical file containing the following elements:

¨- electronics schematics

¨- layout

¨- assembly schematics

¨- bill of material ((list of the electronics

components for each PCB)

¨- mechanical drawings

¨- parts list (lists of the components

making the product: PCBs, housing,

screws, mechanical parts...)

¨- documentation:

¨     . datasheet

¨     . operating manual / user's manual

¨     . installation manual

¨     . service manual

¨     . software documentation

¨- EC declaration of conformity

(when the conformity is demonstrated)

 

 

 

x

Test report showing the performances declared by the manufacturer in his DoP

 

 

x

Last factory audit report (SFPC) with, if it is the case, the corrective actions provided to the NoBo

x

x

x

 

 

 

On that basis, ANPI will carry out the following verifications:

 

Action

BOSEC

component

BOSEC

EN 54-13

non-BOSEC

Accordance between DoP, existing certificate,  test report and technical file

 

 

x

Analysis of the last factory audit report and, if it is the case, of the corrective actions

x

x

x

Analysis of the test report according to the harmonized standard

 

x

x

 

When those verifications are positive, ANPI delivers a new CE-CPR certificate registered under its number (1134) and guarantees its surveillance (the factory audits amongst others).

 

In the case this transfer was realized with another NoBo, the holder of the BOSEC certificate has to provide ANPI with the following elements:

- DoP of the product;

- transferred CE-CPR certificate;

- modified marking of the product.

 

Expiry date

 

The transfer has to be completed at the exit date of Great-Britain out of the European Union. The BOSEC certificates that cover products for which the transfer has not been shown at that date by the holder, will be suspended. Products that were already present in the EU-27 before the exit date keep the BOSEC logo after that date. It is the manufacturing date that determines whether the BOSEC certification is maintained or not.
