Ask the manufacturers for the DoP of the cables you are about to source and check the label. It is your responsibility to fully transfer these documentations to your customers. It is your role to make sure only full compliant products are sold into the market: check it out using the “path” below


Ask your distributors for the DoP and make sure the products include the correct labels. You are entitled to do so. And, if the distributor is unable to provide them in the form defined by the regulation, there might be problems with the product itself: watch out!
