Which Ecodesign requirements must be taken into account by the manufacturer when assessing conformity and issuing the EU declaration of conformity ?

Manufacturers are to ensure compliance with those Ecodesign requirements that are applicable at the time of the placing on the market of an individual unit. However, a number of obligations are to be fulfilled by manufacturers prior to the placing on the market of individual products such as carrying out the conformity assessment, issuing the EU declaration of conformity and affixing the CE marking on the product. 

When more than one piece of EU legislation apply to a product and require the issuing of EU declarations of conformity, the manufacturer can fulfil its commitment via an unique EU declaration of conformity and can also establish a consolidated technical documentation.
