Firstly, you may deem that the product intrinsically meets the requirements of the Directive and does not need testing. An example might be a simple linear unregulated stand-alone power supply which is below the power level at which harmonic currents are controlled. You may sometimes be able to convince your signatory that this is a competent engineering judgement, but many electronic products will not be able to follow this option. Secondly, you may be able to make a declaration based on pre-existing test results.
Directives 76/889 EEC and 76/890 EEC, amended by various other subsequent Directives, apply to interference from household appliances and portable tools, and fluorescent lamps and luminaires.
