The Ministry of Industry, Investment, Trade and Digital Economy of Morocco published the Law 24-09 on the Safety of Products and Services to protect the users of industrial products distributed on the Moroccan market.
This law, which establishes the obligation for any importer or manufacturer to mark its products, is valid for three categories of products:
electrical equipment intended to be used within certain voltage limits
equipment affected by electromagnetic compatibility
The above-mentioned categories of products should meet the requirements of the relevant national technical regulations of Morocco before being able to affix the ‘ C ’. mark.
However, once the product meets the technical regulations requirements, the manufacturer should draw up a declaration of conformity by which he confirms that the product meets the essential safety requirements provided for by the specific technical regulations applicable to that product.
This declaration of conformity must contain:
- products identification information
- name and address of the manufacturer
- reference to the standards applied
Taking into account the fact that foreign manufacturers can not immediately affix the conformity mark, especially in the case when families of products intended to be put to the world market, it was decided not to control the presence of the mark strictly up to November 2021, provided that the manufacturers undertake to initiate the procedure for affixing the mark.
