Recently OFCOM has questioned the legality of these devices as advertised by many smaller and in some cases large distributors and in most cases stopped the companies from trading until they can confirm compliance.The TCF comprise certain technical information and photographs, to demonstrate that the equipment that is being sold is that same variant that was tested. Finally the representative must then construct a Declaration of Conformity (DoC), to show that the remote control golf trolley has met the requirements.

The TCF must be held by the EU representative for 10 years after the product is removed from the market. A negative response and failure to provide such information should make the consumer look elsewhere.The Test report, comprise the results of a series of tests carried out to ensure that the equipment meets the standards laid out in the directive.The equipment must then be marked appropriately, with a CE mark, the name and address of the EU representative, the Duffel Bag Trolley serial number and the model number. This document must accompany the equipment when delivered to the customer.The golfing world has seen the emergence of the Remote Control Golf Trolley, as tool to take over from the push trolleys and now the every popular Electric Golf Trolleys.

The directive came into force April 2000, replacing the Telecommunications Terminal Directive for Telecoms Backpack Trolley equipment and mainly National Standards for Radio Transmitters. It should contain Circuit diagrams, component lists and picture / description to uniquely identify the equipment. It is possible to obtain a Notified Body opinion on a report obtained from outside the EU, in this case the EU representative can then refer to this opinion, when placing the equipment onto the market. This information should appear on the radio equipment devices, and on the packaging.. Ideally this should be carried out by a EU or UK testing house, as OFCOM have encountered numerous problem in validation reports and certificates produced outside of the EU. The aim of the directive is to ensure that the equipment that is being marketed is safe to use and will not interfere with other equipment in the vicinity.
