Step 5: Gather your product documentation
You must keep compliance documentation for each product you intend to supply to the market.
What you need
For every product you supply, you must have:
- a product description
- a signed Supplier Declaration of Conformity (SDoC), to certify that the product meets the appropriate standards
- a test report or other documented evidence of conformity, like a manufacturer’s specification.
These documents make up your compliance declaration for a product.
You can keep paper or electronic copies of each document. If you keep paper-based documentation, you’ll need to store it at your place of business.
You’ll also need to keep compliance documentation for any product you stop supplying to the market for a further five years.
If you’re audited, this information is what our Radio Investigator will use to check for evidence of compliance.
