Not so easy, unfortunately.
An European directive is not yet a law and that directive is a sort of 
headline, incomplete with specific electrical parameters (numbers).
Until single governaments will not only accept that directive issueing 
a specific law (that's also an operative tool), the self certification 
procedure is not applicable.
Of course when there's no law there's also no penalty, and possibly the 
penalty occurs when manufacturer is not respecting the older but still 
acual law.
The situation is actually messing up things because the different 
countries governaments have different "speeds" and the directive is 
formerly accepted but not yet "working" everywhere.
(Another typical example of the european bureaucracy)
Personally, I think most manufacturers will continue anyway to delegate 
the so called "qualified competent bodyies" in order to certfy 
compliances of their product and thus dropping a large amount of their 
legal responsibilities.
