To simplify getting the CE mark on a project a friend and I collaborated on using PIC microcontrollers he found using an enclosed and already certified PSU module helped.
Sorry but that does not simplify the requirements in any way. If you have relied on this then you have done it wrong and you self certification might not be valid.
3. This Directive shall not apply to equipment the inherentnature of the physical characteristics of which is such that:(a) it is incapable of generating or contributing to electromag-netic emissions which exceed a level allowing radio andtelecommunication equipment and other equipment tooperate as intended; and(b) it will operate without unacceptable degradation in thepresence of the electromagnetic disturbance normallyconsequent upon its intended use.
The product only crossed with the EMC directive and we took the below excerpt to mean fitting an already certified and shielded PSU to power the microcontroller (both in another metal box) would be exempt.

Nothing is exempt. Any configuration of pre tested modules must be tested in the configuration that they are sold in. They can not assume to comply just because individual components comply.
