SATRA establishes PPE European Notified Body in Ireland
Published: 7 June 2018 - Victoria White
SATRA Technology Europe Limited has been designated by the Irish government as a Notified Body for Regulation (EU) 2016/425 Personal Protective Equipment and now appears on the European Commission’s website for New Approach Notified and Designated Organisations (NANDO). SATRA Technology Europe Limited, based in Dublin, Ireland, has been issued with the Notified Body Number 2777.
SATRA now has two Notified Bodies: one in Ireland (an EU member state) and one in the UK. This eliminates any uncertainty created by the UK’s decision to withdraw from the European Union. All certificates issued by the UK Notified Body will be valid until at least 30 December 2020 as detailed in the UK Withdrawal Agreement from the EU. Holders of existing certificates can now choose to keep their certificates with the UK Notified Body or transfer them to the Irish Notified Body before the end of 2020.
New applications can be processed through SATRA Technology Europe Limited. Please talk to your usual preferred contact at SATRA and they will send you an application form and explain what to do.
SATRA Technology Europe Limited will operate under the same systems and to the same high standards expected by its customers. Certificates will carry the same globally recognised SATRA logo.
