Re: 4 letters covers it
Just think of the billable hours and expenses to be had from developing a framework that includes where the CE mark should be applied. I'm sure RN officers could offer a few suggestions. But I've been thinking about this a little more-
...will allow certifying authorities to certify everything..
As an example of what's wrong with the EU, real or perceived. Current certifying authorities, national and international are already allowed to certify things within their remit, without the need for an EU body to step in and mess things up. So potentially an extra layer of bureaucracy and cost that doesn't necessarily add any real value.
