4. TRACKING AND FEEDBACK
In the event of queries from the notified body or competent authority, we will of course provide you with advice and assistance and, if necessary, adapt your technical documentation in accordance with the feedback or deviations received. After renewed approval on your part, the final transmission of the file to your Notified Body or auditor takes place.
