Need help with the PED?

The PED provides three routes to conformity, depending both on the equipment and the choice of the manufacturer:

  • Self-certification
  • Third-party examination
  • Third-party inspection and quality management certification

Third-parties must be registered Notified Bodies (NoBos), which are approved by an accreditation body. LRQA was the first NoBo to be accredited for the PED.
