Morocco—CMIM Mark Required for Specific Devices
Beginning January 1, 2020, Morocco’s Ministry of Industry, Trade, and Investment and its Digital Economy are now requiring all products under the LVD/EMC directive be affixed with the CMIM mark. The CMIM mark, which demonstrates compliance with regulatory requirements, is required on the following product groups prior to import:
Electrical equipment that is designed for use within certain voltage limits
Equipment under the scope of the EMC directive
The CMIM mark itself must be visible and legible on the product. If the logo cannot be affixed to the product, it must be affixed to accompanying packaging or documents. Documentation proving that the conformity assessment was performed per technical requirements is mandatory. Other mandatory technical documentation includes:
Conceptual designs and manufacturing schemes, with accompanying descriptions
A list of harmonized standards with descriptions of how those standards were met
Results of design calculations.The CMIM mark cannot be replaced with the CE mark. Marking is the sole responsibility of the manufacturer.
The Moroccan Ministry of Industry, Trade, Investment and the Digital Economy announced at the end of July, 2019 that it would postpone the implementation of rules regarding the new Moroccan safety conformity mark.
The new implementation date is December 31 2019.
The Moroccan conformity mark is established by Law No. 24-09 named “Safety of Products and Services”. This regulation sets the framework for the requirement that any importer or manufacture that imports products described in this law, label those products to comply with this law’s requirement.
Under this law the following equipment must comply with safety rules and regulatory technical requirements and bear a new mark:
Low voltage electrical equipment (LVD) designed for use at a voltage rating 50-1000V for alternating current and 75-1500V for direct current.
The electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) of equipment (does not included wireless communication equipment or telecommunications terminals) toys.
As regulations change from time to time in many countries you should contactCSIA for up to date information.
CSIA can also provide supporting services should your company not be able to meet country specific requirements such as a local representative, local certificate holder, translating documents into the native language, etc. Contact CSIA at (503) 489 8006 or firstname.lastname@example.org for all your FCC certification, CE certification, Industry Canada and International Approval needs.
