Going the extra mile for compliance

At Enovates, we pride ourselves on setting high standards, but we never settle. While our Single Wallbox was already  certified to the industry’s highest benchmarks, we went the extra mile to prove it and obtained a Type Examination certificate, demonstrating our unwavering commitment to compliance and quality.

Now, you might be wondering, what exactly is a Type Examination? Well, let’s break it down.

In accordance with European legislation, all products incorporating radio technologies must adhere to the Radio Equipment Directive. Compliance with this directive can be achieved through two primary methods:

Module A – Internal Conformity Assessment: In this approach, the manufacturer conducts the necessary tests and compiles the required technical documentation internally. They then affirm compliance based on their own assessment. While this method is entirely legal and commonly used, it is inherently subjective, relying heavily on the manufacturer’s judgment.

Module B – EU Type Examination: Contrary to Module A, in Module B, the manufacturer conducts the requisite tests and gathers technical documentation, which is then submitted to a notified body—a certified laboratory—for assessment. The notified body meticulously reviews all documentation to determine if the product complies with the Radio Equipment Directive.

In essence:

Module A: The company asserts, “Trust us, our product complies.”
Module B: A notified body confirms, “Yes, they’re correct. This product complies and is fit for the European market.”

Now, you might be thinking, “Radio equipment? It’s just a charging station.”

Indeed, while it may seem straightforward, charging stations often utilize various radio technologies such as RFID, Cellular, WiFi, or Bluetooth. Consequently, they fall under the purview of the Radio Equipment Directive, necessitating compliance to ensure adherence to regulatory standards.

At Enovates, we understand the importance of meticulous attention to detail and adherence to regulations. By obtaining the Type Examination certificate, we not only affirm our dedication to compliance but also reassure our customers of the quality and reliability of our products.

Join us on our journey as we continue to innovate and set new standards in the industry while prioritizing compliance every step of the way.
