In short, manufacturers are obliged by law to prepare technical documentation for their products. Technical documentation is intended to ensure that the products can be commissioned, used, and maintained in a safe and proper manner.

There are various EU directives on this subject, such as the Product Safety Directive, which must then be transposed into national law within the member countries.
