CE Marking

CE marking is a mandatory conformity marking for certain products sold within the European Economic Area (EEA) since 1985. CE marking on a product is the manufacturer’s declaration that the product complies with the essential requirements of all the Directives that apply to it. It indicates to the appropriate bodies that the product may be legally offered for sale in their country. The requirements for CE marking differ across all the Directives and may also vary for different products within a Directive. Depending on the criticality of product, CE marking may be as simple as formulating a only technical file, or as complex as having to submit your products on regular basis to independent scrutiny. Third party testing, systems assessment, and technical file assessments may be mandatory, but sometimes the manufacturer’s unverified claim is all that’s asked for.

“CE” originated as an abbreviation of ConformitĂ© EuropĂ©enne, meaning European Conformity, but is not defined as such in the relevant legislation. The CE marking is a symbol of free marketability in the European Economic Area.
