‘“EC” certificate of suitability for use’ means the certificate delivered for an interoperability constituent by the notified body of the suitability for use of an interoperability constituent considered within its railway environment;

(h) 

‘certificate of verification’ means the certificate delivered for a subsystem either by the notified body or by the designated body regarding the verification of conformity respectively with relevant TSIs or with relevant national rules from the design stage to the acceptance stage before the subsystem is placed on the market or in service and which covers verification of the interfaces of the subsystem in question with the system into which it is incorporated;

(i) 

‘“EC” certificate of verification’ means the certificate delivered for a subsystem by the notified body regarding solely the verification of conformity with relevant TSIs;

(j) 

‘declaration of conformity to an authorised vehicle type’ means the declaration established for a vehicle by the applicant in which the applicant declares on its sole responsibility that the vehicle concerned, which has been subject to the relevant verification procedures, conforms to an authorised vehicle type and satisfies the requirements of the relevant Union law and relevant national rules.
