Manufacturers of Industrial Control Panels (ICP) who intend to sell their products into Europe must comply with applicable Directives and “Self-declare” by applying the CE Mark. Based on the ICP’s intended use, a manufacturer determines which of the following three directives is most appropriate: Low Voltage, Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC), or Machinery.
Engaging with a trusted third party such as UL can help you ensure that you’ve done your due diligence and are prepared to meet the necessary EN Standards. After the expert evaluation is completed, UL will provide a Technical Report Form (TRF), allowing the manufacturer to Self-declare and provide documentation to EU officials if requested.
