Any change compared to the way of operating under the Directive ? Implementation of guidance documents ? Harmonisation ? What can an organisation as ESF do to support the market surveillance authorities and help acting against non-compliant PPE ?
Topic 2 : Notified Bodies
Harmonisation of work of Notified Bodies ? Knowledge of NBs of legislation, of guidance documents, of standards, of application of the PPE ? Information provided by NBs ? capacity at NBs ? Certification of innovative PPE (no standard available) ?
Topic 3 : Standards
Are standards helping the system ? SWOT ? Role of harmonised standards ? Are standards reflecting reality (products and use of PPE) ? Effects of revision of standard ? Role of NBs / authorities / trade organisations in information about standards ? Role in development of standards ?
