TCA president: "awareness is one thing, conformance is another"

Many system builders ‘do not conform to EU laws’

Many British PC builders are failing to observe EU laws, the head of a trade body has said.

Keith Warburton, president of the Technology Channels Association, wrote in a blog for PCR: “Most of the system builders and resellers have some awareness of the legislation. But awareness is one thing, conformance is another.”

According to Warburton, the CE mark, which indicates that an item conforms to European standards, is a regulation “currently more honoured in the breach than in the observance”.

“Just because the components conform, that doesn’t mean the system will. Or, as the guidance puts it: ‘CE + CE does not = CE’,” he added.
