Judging by the discussion here it seems there is a certain amount of confusion about CE marking. Even the established directives are creating concern. In early 2013 the RoHS directive will have been fully translated into member state law and carry its own set of CE obligations.
What do you think the “real world” implications will be for this reasonably substantial restructuring of the legislation? How do you think the SME in particular will be affected?
What about specific regulatory tools such as Harmonised Standards? These are relied upon by so many obligated parties because they offer such clarity but it is difficult to envisage how this type of regulatory tool can/will be implemented in relation to RoHS.
