The Global Approach was completed by Council Decision 90/683/EEC, which was replaced and brought up to date by Decision 93/465/EEC. These decisions lay down general guidelines and detailed procedures for conformity assessment that are to be used in New Approach directives. Thus, conformity assessment is based on:
  • Manufacturers' internal design and production control activities
  • Third party type examination combined with manufacturers' internal production control activities
  • Third party type or design examination combined with third party approval of product or production quality assurance systems, or third party product verification
  • Third party unit verification of design and production
  • Third party approval of full quality assurance systems
In addition to laying down guidelines for the use of conformity assessment procedures in technical harmonization directives, Decision 93/465/EEC harmonizes the rules for the affixing and use of the CE marking.
