MODULE B: EU TYPE-EXAMINATION — PRODUCTION TYPE
1.1.  EU type-examination is the part of a conformity assessment procedure in which a notified body examines the technical design of an appliance or a fitting and verifies and attests that the technical design of the appliance or the fitting meets the requirements of this Regulation that apply to it.
1.2.  EU type-examination shall be carried out by assessment of the adequacy of the technical design of the appliance or the fitting through examination of the technical documentation and supporting evidence referred to in point 1.3, plus examination of a specimen, representative of the production envisaged, of the complete appliance or fitting (production type).
1.3.  The manufacturer shall lodge an application for EU type-examination with a single notified body of his choice.
1.3.1.  The application shall include the following:
(a)  the name and address of the manufacturer and, if the application is lodged by the authorised representative, his name and address as well;
(b)  a written declaration that the same application has not been lodged with any other notified body;
(c)  the technical documentation. The technical documentation shall make it possible to assess the appliance's or fitting's conformity with the applicable requirements of this Regulation and shall include an adequate analysis and assessment of the risk(s). The technical documentation shall specify the applicable requirements and cover, as far as relevant for the assessment, the design, manufacture and operation of the appliance or the fitting. The technical documentation shall contain, wherever applicable, at least the following elements: 
(1) a general description of the appliance or the fitting; 
(2) conceptual design and manufacturing drawings and schemes of components, sub-assemblies, circuits, etc.; 
(3) descriptions and explanations necessary for the understanding of those drawings and schemes and the operation of the appliance or the fitting; 
(4) a list of the harmonised standards applied in full or in part the references of which have been published in the Official Journal of the European Union and, where those harmonised standards have not been applied, descriptions of the solutions adopted to meet the essential requirements of this Regulation, including a list of other relevant technical specifications applied. In the event of partly applied harmonised standards, the technical documentation shall specify the parts which have been applied; 
(5) results of design calculations made, examinations carried out, etc.; 
(6) test reports; 
(7) instructions for installation and use of the appliance; 
(8) the EU declaration of conformity of the fitting containing the instructions on how the fitting should be incorporated into an appliance or assembled to constitute an appliance;
(d)  the specimens representative of the production envisaged. The notified body may request further specimens where needed for carrying out the test programme;
(e)  the supporting evidence for the adequacy of the technical design solution. This supporting evidence shall mention any documents that have been used, in particular where the relevant harmonised standards have not been applied in full. The supporting evidence shall include, where necessary, the results of tests carried out in accordance with other relevant technical specifications by the appropriate laboratory of the manufacturer, or by another testing laboratory on his behalf and under his responsibility.
1.3.2.  Where appropriate, the manufacturer shall also submit to the notified body the following documents:
(a)  the EU type-examination certificate and the EU declaration of conformity relating to the fittings incorporated into the appliance;
(b)  attestations and certificates relating to the methods of manufacture and/or inspection and/or monitoring of the appliance or the fitting;
(c)  any other document making it possible for the notified body to improve its assessment.

Without prejudice to its obligations vis-à-vis the notifying authorities, the notified body shall release the content of that report, in full or in part, only with the agreement of the manufacturer.
1.6.  Where the appliance or the fitting type meets the requirements of this Regulation, the notified body shall issue an EU type-examination certificate to the manufacturer. The certificate shall contain the name and address of the manufacturer, the conclusions of the examination, the conditions (if any) for its validity, the necessary data for identification of the approved type, such as the type of gas, appliance category and gas supply pressure, and, if relevant, descriptions of its functioning. The certificate may have one or more annexes attached.
The EU type-examination certificate and its annexes shall contain all relevant information to allow the conformity of manufactured appliances or fittings with the examined type to be evaluated and to allow for in-service control. It shall also indicate any conditions to which its issue may be subject and be accompanied by the descriptions and drawings necessary for identification of the approved type.
The certificate shall have a maximum validity period of ten years from the date of its issue.
Where the type does not satisfy the applicable requirements of this Regulation, the notified body shall refuse to issue an EU type-examination certificate and shall inform the applicant accordingly, giving detailed reasons for its refusal.
1.7.  The notified body shall keep itself apprised of any changes in the generally acknowledged state of the art which indicate that the approved type may no longer comply with the applicable requirements of this Regulation, and shall determine whether such changes require further investigation. If so, the notified body shall inform the manufacturer accordingly.
The manufacturer shall inform the notified body that holds the technical documentation relating to the EU type- examination certificate of all modifications to the approved type that may affect the conformity of the appliance or the fitting with the essential requirements of this Regulation or the conditions for validity of the certificate. Such modifications shall require additional approval in the form of an addition to the original EU type- examination certificate.
1.8.  Each notified body shall inform its notifying authority concerning the EU type-examination certificates and/or any additions thereto which it has issued or withdrawn, and shall, periodically or upon request, make available to its notifying authority the list of such certificates and/or any additions thereto refused, suspended or otherwise restricted.
Each notified body shall inform the other notified bodies concerning the EU type-examination certificates and/or any additions thereto which it has refused, withdrawn, suspended or otherwise restricted, and, upon request, concerning such certificates and/or additions thereto which it has issued.
The Commission, the Member States and the other notified bodies may, on request, obtain a copy of the EU type-examination certificates and/or additions thereto. On request, the Commission and the Member States may obtain a copy of the technical documentation and the results of the examinations carried out by the notified body. The notified body shall keep a copy of the EU type-examination certificate, its annexes and additions, as well as the technical file including the documentation submitted by the manufacturer, until the expiry of the validity of that certificate.
1.9.  The manufacturer shall keep a copy of the EU type-examination certificate, its annexes and additions together with the technical documentation at the disposal of the national authorities for 10 years after the appliance or the fitting has been placed on the market.
