If a company manufactures products that it wants to sell in the Czech Republic or the EU (i.e. introduce products to the market), it must comply with the provisions of the Act no. 90/2016 Coll. on Technical Requirements for Products. A product can only be introduced to the market if it is safe and it has the appropriate documentation, i.e.::
- Meets the requirements of EU regulations for the properties of the product
- The procedures for the evaluation of conformity specified in these regulations have been applied
Only the manufacturer alone (applies to products manufactured and sold in the EU) is responsible for ensuring that it only introduces such products to the market which meet these requirements.
A product, which is introduced to the market of any EU state, is simultaneously introduced to the common market of all EU countries. It can be freely supplied / distributed from this member state to other EU states, without technical barriers. Certain member states have may set down specific requirements by a regulation, for instance concerning accompanying product documentation.
Some products in the field of consumer and industrial electronics may be assessed in accordance with a special regulation – the GD 176/2008 Coll., defining technical requirements for machinery.
When introducing a product to the market, the manufacturer must also evaluate the energy demands of the product and mark the product with the energy label . These obligations are set forth in Directive no. 2010/30/EU of the EP and the Council on the indication of the consumption of energy and other resources on energy labels of products related to energy consumption and in standardized information about products. This is a directive that superseded and clarified previous Council Directive no. 92/75/EEC, effective from July 21, 2011. Requirements for individual types of products are further elaborated in specific European Commission directives.
Basic obligations of the manufacturer:
- To prepare technical documentation
- To prepare a Declaration of Conformity
- To attach the CE mark
- To mark the product with an energy label
- To demonstrate conformity of the product with the GD at the request of the supervisory body (technical documentation, information)
- To keep technical documentation for the 10 years period from the introduction of the product to the market
- To identify the product and the manufacturer
- In case of suspected or confirmed nonconformity, to ensure corrective measures, or withdrawal of the product from the market
Products are introduced to the market using the system of evaluation of conformity of products in accordance with the Act no. 90/2016 Coll., as amended and related Government Directives:
The Government Directive 118/2016 Coll. defining technical requirements for low-voltage electric equipment.
The Government Directive 117/2016 Coll. on the technical requirements for products in terms of their electromagnetic compatibility The Government Directive no. 481/2012 Coll. on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electric and electronic equipment The Government Directive no. 426/20 Coll. on the technical requirements for radio and telecommunications end devices The Government Directive no. 176/2008 Coll. on the technical requirements for machinery.
