Hi,

I need to change the address on the artwork of a Class IIa product. Is there any regulation that prevents me putting a printed label over the top of the orginal name/address?

Thanks in advance

If you need to change the address, do you have a CE certificate having the new address already ?

Hi,

Yes the CE certificate will be issued with th enew address. The purpose of over labelling is to use up the stock I have with the old address present

There is no rule preventing it, you will need to carry out a risk assessment and demonstrate that you continue to comply with the Essential requirements, but it has been done before.

I would suggest you speak to your notified body about what they advise, this is a regular occurrence
