EC conformity of an avalanche release system


Any product marketed in the European Union must comply with the European directives for which it is submitted. Some complex systems may be subjected to several directives. Because of technological innovation and the use of new processes, some products are not yet covered by a harmonized standard making the proof of conformity to directives more difficult. The conformity assessment of such new products is however necessary in order to be eligible for the EC marking. This article deals with the compliance of such new products based on the specific case of a helicopter-borne preventive avalanche release system using hydrogen. This article stresses the difficulties in interpretation of the directives
