Do I need an Authorised representative when putting my IoT product on the UK market?
Manufacturers of IoT devices shall, to a reasoned request from a competent national authority, provide it with all the
information and documentation in paper or electronic form necessary to demonstrate the conformity of the radio equipment with the Radio Equipment Directive, in a language which can be easily understood by that authority. They shall cooperate with that authority, at its request, on any action taken to eliminate the risks posed by radio equipment which they have placed on the market.
By appointing IoT Consulting Partners as your UK Authorised representative, we can represent you towards the authorities with the following tasks:
- keep the UKCA declaration of conformity and the technical documentation at the disposal of national market surveillance authorities for ten years after the radio equipment has been placed on the market;
- further to a reasoned request from a competent national authority, provide that authority with all the information
and documentation necessary to demonstrate the conformity of radio equipment;
- cooperate with the competent national authorities, at their request, on any action taken to eliminate the risks posed by radio equipment covered by the authorised representative’s mandate.
- Inform you immediately about any complaints or issues from surveillance authorities.
**The obligations laid down in Article 10(1) (ensuring design and manufacturing in accordance to the essential requirements) and the obligation to draw up technical documentation laid down in Article 10(3) of the RE Directive shall not form part of the authorised representative’s mandate.
