Since this is a class-2 equipment, the receiver can only be validated together with the complete system of the customer. Thus the assessment of conformity takes place at the customer. At the request of the customer steute can provide a CE mark with the 4-digit number of the customer's notified body.

Application of a CE certified switch conforming to the Medical Device Directive still requires proof of the conformity of the complete system according to the Medical Device Directive (Directive 93/42/EEC) by the person responsible for launching it on the market!
