로이드인증원은 협상 과정에 관계없이 고객에게 원활한 서비스를 제공하기 위해 최선을 다하고 있으며, 이를 위해 필요한 모든 조치를 취하고 있습니다.
아직 영국이 EU에서 탈퇴하기로 한 협정을 마무리 짓지 못했습니다. LR의 활동 중 잠재적으로 Brexit의 영향을 받을 수 있는 두 가지 핵심 영역이 있습니다.
- 첫째, 다양한 EU 지침 및 규정에 따른 인증 기관(NoBo)으로서의 활동
- 그리고 EU의 후원이 필요한 해양 및 해상 부문의 인정 기관(RO)으로서의 활동입니다.
Standards Committee(표준 위원회), Notified Body Forums(인증 기관 포럼)에의 참여와 정부 및 업계와의 강력한 관계를 통해, 새로운 사항에 대해 업데이트 받을 수 있습니다.
LR은 고객이 EU 및 영국 시장에 대한 접근을 지속하면서 최대한 원활하게 NoBo 및 RO 승인을 유지할 수 있도록 노력하고 있습니다.
협상 진행 결과가 나오는 대로, LR 홈페이지와 귀사의 담당자를 통해 최신 정보를 업데이트해드릴 예정입니다.
특정 관심 분야 및 추가 정보는 다음 링크를 통해 글로벌 본사 홈페이지를 참조해주시기 바랍니다.
귀하의 문의에 대한 답변은 아래의 자주 묻는 질문 섹션에서 확인하실 수 있습니다.
Lloyd's Register는 Brexit 후에도 EU에서 인증기관 서비스를 계속 제공하나요?
Yes, we are committed to providing all our customers with the same range of services post Brexit in the EU27 and the UK and we currently provide in the EU.
We are already approved as a NoBo for the Lifts Directive in France by COFRAC: our NoBo number 2748.
We have made applications for other approvals in the Netherlands, where LR has a large and long-established operation. We intend to provide similar services to those currently provided, through two existing notified bodies in the Netherlands, Lloyd's Register Verification BV (for Industrial Equipment Directives and Transportable Container authorisations) and Lloyd's Register Nederland BV (for Medical Devices and In-Vitro Diagnostics Devices).
We have made applications for Medical Devices directives under 93/42/EEC and 98/79/EC to VWS/Directie GMT in the Netherlands for notified body approval for Lloyd's Register Nederland BV.
We have made applications for ATEX, CPR, MD, MED, ND, PED, RID and the SPVD directives to RvA in the Netherlands for NoBo approval for Lloyd's Register Verification BV. We already hold a variety of accreditations in the Netherlands through which we have a longstanding relationship with RvA.
The applications are in various stages of assessment, with an expectation of obtaining approvals starting from around the end of 2018.
We have already prepared the required applications to the relevant Dutch authorities for the EU Transportable Pressure Equipment Directive, the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR) regulation, and the Transport of Dangerous Goods by Rail (RID).
기존의 LR 인증서는 언제까지 유효하나요?
Unless a mutual recognition arrangement is agreed between the EU and the UK either on a transitional or permanent basis as part of the Withdrawal Agreement, currently issued LR certificates will cease to be valid with effect from the withdrawal date (30 March 2019 00:00 hrs CET). There are indications that mutual recognition of Notified Bodies will be included within the scope of the proposed transition agreement, covering the period until December 2020. We understand that discussions also include the possibility of a permanent mutual recognition scheme forming part of the final agreement. However, to address the possibility that there could ultimately be no recognition agreement between the EU and the UK, we are taking necessary measures to enable us to continue to support our clients, by obtaining Notified Body appointments within the EU27.
인증기관 전환은 무료인가요, 아니면 명목상의 비용이 청구되나요?
It is our intention to transfer clients’ approvals from our UK Notified Body to that in the Netherlands with minimum cost once we obtain appointment in the Netherlands. We are discussing the transfer process with the Dutch authorities and will let you know any developments as they arise.
업데이트: EU에서 계속 인정될 수 있도록 인증을 전환하려면 어떻게 해야 하나요?
We have made applications for ATEX, CPR, MD, MED, ND, PED, RID and the SPVD directives for NoBo approval for Lloyd's Register Verification BV in the Netherlands and are pleased to confirm that this has received accreditation from the Dutch Accreditation Council, Raad voor Accreditatie (RvA).
This means we can now progress with our application to the various Dutch ministries and we expect to receive formal notification and a posting on the Nando website in the next few weeks.
Once we receive approval, we will have Notified Body status both in the UK and the Netherlands. As such, in the case of a soft Brexit i.e. a structured withdrawal from the EU with an agreed deal, this will allow you to decide which will best meet the needs of your business.
Notified Body status in the Netherlands means we can continue to provide similar services to those now provided through our UK Notified Body for the following EC Directives and Regulations:
Noise emission in the environment by equipment for use outdoors
Transportable Pressure Equipment
Simple Pressure Vessels
Interoperability of the rail system within the Community
Directive (EU) 2016/797
Interoperability of the rail system within the European Union (recast)
Regulation (EU) No 305/2011
Please note, our application for Directive 2014/90/EU Marine equipment is being treated as an Extension to Scope (ETS) and will be added to the schedule of accreditation in the coming weeks.
If you decide to transfer, the next stage in the process will be to move your current certificates from LRV Ltd/LRC-Energy AS to LRV B.V. We have ensured that our Notified Bodies in the UK and the Netherlands work to identical processes and procedures which will make the transitioning of your certificates from one body to another as straightforward as possible, with minimal impact on your business.
The transfer includes the issue of certificates bearing the new Notified Body number assigned to us in the Netherlands, which then fully replaces your existing certificate issued from the UK.
