One of the main conditions for the application of the agreement is that the product has been manufactured in one of the Member States. When an applicant requests national certification from OVE in order to obtain the Austrian safety mark of a product on the basis of an NTR, the following should be submitted: in short, the agreement implies that a manufacturer or importer from a Member State files his product for full examination with an approved testing laboratory in a country that complies with the CSF. If it has been verified that the product complies with current standards and national authorisation has been granted, a notification of test results (NTR) is issued together with a test report. The CENELEC Certification Agreement (CCA) is a European agreement on the mutual recognition of test results and aims to facilitate exchanges between participating countries. The aim of the agreement is to ensure that the results of a test in each country are accepted in the other CCA countries. CSF is a mutual recognition agreement covering all product categories. The European CSF certification system allows faster access to the market, as certification testing is carried out in one place in many countries. In order to further reduce the processing time, an alternative procedure has been developed, the so-called “Accelerated CCA” procedure. This procedure means that as a notified body worldwide, we trust to ensure that products and devices comply with different product certification policies and systems.
Certification is a part of conformity assessment (e.g. B examination, certification, accreditation). It is an attestation from a third party that a product, service, person or management system meets certain requirements. By giving the buyer confidence that a product or service meets the requirements, certification facilitates trade both within and between countries. Plant inspection reports issued by Member States` NCBs and not more than 3 years old are generally accepted. For more information on national certification, see the section: A manufacturer who has received a registered CCA mark certificate from one of the certification bodies that are signatories to the CCA Agreement, for example.B. SEP-BBJ, can also obtain a CCA certificate called NTR (Notification of Test Results), on the basis of which, in rapid mode without additional testing, a certificate may be obtained by another national unit of another country. . .
