Conformity assessment procedures describe the steps required to asses the equipment's compliance to the essential requirements. Several conformity assessment procedures are available. They are described in annexes 2 to 4 of the ordinance of 25 November 2015 on telecommunications installations (FAV).
A notified body has to be involved in the conformity assessment procedure if the manufacturer has not applied or only partially applied the technical standards designated by OFCOM for the essential requirements in terms of an efficient use of the spectrum or an additional essential requirement.
The applied conformity assessment procedure must be documented in the technical documentation. On OFCOM's request the entity responsible for market access must be able to provide the technical documentation within a reasonable delay (usually 15 days).
The manufacturer must take all necessary steps in order to ensure that its equipment complies with the applicable requirements
