Risk analyses and risk assessment The conformity assessment procedures for apparatus require the manufacturer to establish technical documentation. This documentation shall make it possible to assess the conformity of the apparatus to the relevant requirements, and shall include an adequate analysis and assessment of the risk(s). In EMCD the concept of risk refers to risks in relation to the electromagnetic compatibility protection aims specified in Annex I “Essential Requirements” and not to safety. On basis of the knowledge of the relevant EMC phenomena for the apparatus and its intended operating environments the EMC assessment according to chapter 4.3 can be performed. This EMC assessment is considered to be an adequate analysis and assessment of the risk(s). See also Blue Guide section 4.1.1 "Definition of essential requirements".
