Authorised Representative

What is an European Authorised Representative?

The European Authorised Representative is a natural person or a legal entity which acts on behalf of the manufacturer within the CE legislation. The Authorised Representative must be established in the European Union. Regardless if the manufacturer is situated within or outside the European Union, he or she can appoint an Authorised Representative to carry out certain tasks required within the applicable CE legislation. However, there are industries, where the manufacurer is obliged to appoint an authorised representative (for example, Medical Devices).

Possible tasks for Authorised Representative

  • affix the CE marking (and where relevant other markings) and the notified body’s number to the product,
  • draw up and sign the EC Declaration of Conformity,
  • keep the Declaration and the Technical Documentation at the disposal of national surveillance authorities and cooperate with them at their request,
  • upon a reasoned request from a competent national authority, provide that authority with all the information and documentation necessary to demonstrate the conformity of a product
