Gli Organismi notificati (Notified body) sono autorizzati e necessari, in taluni casi, a supporto dei costruttori, per le procedure di apposizione della marcatura CE.
L'UE ha messo a disposizione, online, una banca dati:
Nando information system (New Approach Notified and Designated Organizations),
che raccoglie tutti i dati relativi agli organismi europei notificati - nonché quelli di paesi terzi - responsabili dello svolgimento delle procedure di valutazione della conformità di cui alle pertinenti direttive del "nuovo approccio".
Nando (New Approach Notified and Designated Organisations) Information System
Notification is an act whereby a Member State informs the Commission and the other Member States that a body, which fulfils the relevant requirements, has been designated to carry out conformity assessment according to a directive. Notification of Notified Bodies and their withdrawal are the responsibility of the notifying Member State.
The Member States, EFTA countries (EEA members) and other countries with which the EC has concluded Mutual Recognition Agreements (MRAs) and Protocols to the Europe Agreements on Conformity Assessment and Acceptance of Industrial Products (PECAs) have designated Notified Bodies, established per directive. Lists of Notified Bodies can be searched on the NANDO web site. The lists include the identification number of each notified body as well as the tasks for which it has been notified, and are subject to regular update.
NB: The lists of notified bodies are given for information only and are valid at the date indicated. Information is made available as provided by the designating authorities of the Member States.
Any comments concerning the information contained in the lists should be addressed by the notified bodies themselves directly to the relevant competent authorities in the Member States which are responsible for the designation of the bodies.
