    • Module A – Internal Production Control (Notified Body [NB] Not Required)
    • Module Aa – Same as above + Tests under responsibility of NB
    • Module B – EC Type-Examination: Responsibility of NB
    • Module C – Conformity to Type: NB Not Required, but must be used with Module B)
    • Module D – Production Quality Assurance: Used with Module B, Responsibility of NB
    • Module E – Product Quality Assurance : Used with Module B, Responsibility of NB
  • 6.
    • Module F – Verification of Product: Used with Module B, Responsibility of NB
    • Module G – Unit Verification: Covers design and production. Each product is examined individually by the NB that issues a conformity certificate.
    • Module H – Full Quality Assurance: Covers design and production. NB certifies ISO 9001, final inspection of product and testing
  • 7.
    • Declaration of Conformity and, where applicable, the Certificate of Conformity must cover individual or several products and shall either go with product or be kept with manufacturer.
    • Module C is to be used with module B (EC type examination). Modules D, E and F may be used on their own.
    • Module H is the most viable for affixing the CE Mark in most cases , if the Manufacturer is implementing, or has an ISO 9001 quality management system.
