CE Mark Certification


Introduction

The Conformitè Europëenne (CE) Mark is defined as the European Union’s (EU) mandatory conformity marking for regulating the goods sold within the European Economic Area (EEA) since 1985. The CE marking represents a manufacturer’s declaration that products comply with the EU’s New Approach Directives. These directives not only apply to products within the EU but also for products that are manufactured in or designed to be sold in the EEA. This makes the CE marking recognizable worldwide even to those unfamiliar with the EEA.

A CE Mark is a symbol that must be affixed to many products before they can be sold on the European market. The mark indicates that a product:

  • Fulfills the requirements of relevant European product directives
  • Meets all the requirements of the relevant recognized European harmonized performance and safety standards
  • Is fit for its purpose and will not endanger lives or property

  • The presence of CE marking further indicates that appropriate technical documentation supporting the use of the mark is available and can be provided by the manufacturer, importer, or person responsible for placing the product on the EU market upon request.

    Importance of CE Marking

    Affixing a CE Mark to a product is considered a means to certify for authorities within the EU member states that the product meets all appropriate EU requirements.
    There is an EU requirement that products not in conformity with the provisions of the directives are not allowed to circulate in the territories of the member states; appropriate action should be taken to remove these products from sale and use within the specific state. One example is the recent import of toys from China to the UK which, when examined, were found to contain a high level of poisonous toxins that endanger life.
    The importer and/or manufacturer must take steps to comply with safety provisions, produce the appropriate records, and decide on the necessary procedures to maintain production in conformity with directives. The CE Mark must be affixed to demonstrate conformity with the provisions of the directives.
    Specific directives have comprehensive safety objectives, but they leave the manufacturer to make decisions on how these may be achieved.
    Where more than one CE Mark directive pertains to a product and a transitional period allows the manufacturer a choice of which to apply, the marking indicates conformity only with those directives applied by the manufacturer. In this case the directives that have been applied must be identified in the documents or notices accompanying the product. Where the manufacturer does not list those directives that have been applied, the authorities will assume that a declaration of conformity is available for all applicable directives.
