For the following harmonised supporting standard for materials, presumption of conformity to the ESRs is limited to
technical data of materials in the standard and does not presume adequacy of the material to a specific equipment.
Consequently the technical data stated in the material standard should be assessed against the design requirements of the
specific equipment to verify that the ESRs of the PED are satisfied.

in individual cases. Operators must therefore continue at all
times to be extremely vigilant in operating the arrangements,
especially when it comes to preferential certificates of origin.
Among the measures proposed (second subparagraph of
paragraph 9(3)(2)) was the more systematic use of an early
warning system for importers in cases of reasonable doubt as
