Declaration of conformity "Switzerland"

With the declaration of conformity the manufacturer or his authorised representative declares, that the radiocommunications equipment complies with the essential requirements. The declaration of conformity is to be issued by the manufacturer or his authorised representative based in Switzerland. If the radiocommunications equipment is subject to multiple regulations requiring a declaration of conformity, a single declaration must be issued. A dossier consisting of several individual declarations is regarded as a single declaration.

Any radio equipment placed on the market must be accompanied by a declaration of conformity with the essential requirements in its full form or in its simplified form at the manufacturer's discretion.

The declaration of conformity "Switzerland" accompanies radiocommunications equipment which carry the Swiss conformity mark.
