Could anyone tell whether manufacturer not located in any member state can select an authorised representative for MDD which is differrent from an authorised representative for RE directive, for a single product covered by both MDD and RE directive?

I don't know of any legal requirement that prevents you from having 2 different ARs.

AR = Authorised Representative
RED = Radio Equipment Directive

I'm also unaware of any restriction in the MDD (can't comment on RED). Although I would think it makes sense to keep them the same.

That being said the new MD regulation which isn't yet in force (or even final) will require a level of competence on the part of the AR. If there are similar competence expectations in RED then it would make sense to keep them seperate

Thank you, pkost.:thanks:

Some consultants who want to be an authorised representative of RE Directive do not want to be an authorised representative of MDD.

So, I asked.
