Re the manufacturer self-certifies? Seriously?

Self certification is actually quite common in highly complex areas (in many locales even nuclear power plant operators self-certify) which fact usually comes with very strong incentives for the operator or manufacturer not to lie in the certification. And having seen the complex certification processes in the nuclear power generation I would never argue that a public agency would be per default better suited to do the certification, quite the contrary. So in this case it may have been the incentives what failed.
