11.1. The supplier shall bear sole responsibility and thus guarantee that all goods and services supplied (including those of pre‑suppliers and sub‑contractors) shall be in compliance with the latest state of the art, the relevant legal requirements, applicable norms, rules, standards, regulations, directives etc. of any competent authority, public body, employers' liability insurance, professional associations and such. This shall in particular apply to the following directives in their most recent versions, or in the version of any directives or any standards which may replace them (including their national implementations):

- Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive 2014/30/EU
- Low Voltage Directive 2014/35/EU
- “REACH“-Directive 1907/2006/EC
If in certain situations and as an exception, deviations from such directives etc. should be or become necessary, the supplier must obtain M&C's prior written approval. Such approval shall in no way exclude or modify the suppliers' liability for defects.
11.2. The supplier is responsible for ensuring that all products supplied by him comply with the limit values of the Directive on the Restriction of Hazardous Substances 2011/65/EU in conjunction with 2015/863/EU (RoHS3) and its amendments at the time of delivery.
11.3. The supplier shall deliver the relevant safety data sheets to M&C together with the respective products. He shall indemnify M&C from all third party claims that may be raised because the required safety data sheets have not been delivered in a timely manner or if they are faulty. If the respective security data sheets are modified or revised after supply, the supplier shall advise M&C thereof without delay.
11.4. If and to the extent M&C needs certain certificates and/or declarations in order to resell the products purchased, such as certificates of quality, declarations of conformity and/or long‑term suppliers' declarations, M&C will advise the supplier of such necessity and the supplier shall thereupon deliver the required documents in their most recent version to M&C at his earliest convenience.
